Here’s a secret macOS keyboard shortcut

I’ve got a new favorite keyboard shortcut I heard about on the MacGeekGab podcast:
In the Finder, the keyboard shortcut Command + Shift + Period toggles the visibility of invisible files and folders on your Mac. Press it to show the invisible files and folders; press it again to hide them. Sweet!   

I love keyboard shortcuts and I hope you do too. They save you time and effort and are a habit worth developing. I wrote a blog post about it, which you can read here.
