Unhides hidden files in the Finder.

Overview

Blind unhides hidden files in Finder on a very easy way: You have just to launch the app. It changes the preferences of Finder and restarts it. So you have access to them on a very fast way, especially if you place Blind in Finder's toolbar. To hide the files you just have to launch Blind again.

To put things in the finder window toolbar, you right-click (or ctrl-click) the toolbar just below the top of the window. However, such a button does not exist in the customization window, so it cannot be added. Also, I launched this and it crashed the finder, and it did not come back. the only windows that stayed were my Safari windows. Hardly an inspirational action from an app. Fix these two problems, it might be worthwhile. Mac G4 AGP 1.2Ghz, OSX 10.4.7. I feel odd for posting a review for a product that fails to work properly. Let's say Features and Value *would* be a 5 if it did work.

This way you can easily toggle show/hide hidden files directly in the Finder menu. http://blog.vitim.us/2012/10/toggle-visibility-of-hidden-files-and.html

Works as described, except that version 1.1 *does* restart the Finder on my machine running 10.4.10.

Works perfectly for me and I think it's the best “show invisible files” tool I've ever used. Put into the Finder toolbar, it's easily accessible and you don't have to start (and close) a tool like Invisibles or keep a dashboard widged around that does the same thing. To make it look like a real Finder button, I've created a new icon that fits even better than the original one (I will send it to the developer). No real problems to report here (used since 08/2006). If the Finder doesn't restart after being quit, simply click on its Dock icon and it will come up again. That happened once or twice but isn't an error of Blind. This could happen with all those invisible tools and even if you force quit the Finder by yourself.

Hallo AIKOUSHA, thank you for your comment. You are right, I should really write a README-File about how to put apps in Finder's toolbar (that are things you can overlook if you think they are self-evident) . If you don't wont wait please read my comment from there, I hope that should help for the first moment: http://www.macupdate.com/reviews.php?id=22495&pid=154877 I will try to find and fix your second problem (in a few days, as soon as I have time for programming, by Friday it should be fixed). That the Finder didn't come back is unintended. Did your Finder ran some tasks while you were launching Blind? Sorry for any disagreeableness, Alexander Jandt
