How to Show the User Library Folder in Mac OS X Lion

Apple has hidden the user Library folder by default in Mac OS X Lion. These are instructions on how to make it visible again.

Step One
Launch a new Terminal window from your Applications:Utilities folder.

Step Two
Type in chflags nohidden ~/Library/ into the Terminal window and press Enter.

Step Three
Voila, your Library folder will now appear in your Finder window.

NOTE: If you don't want to permanently make the Library folder hidden you can also just hold down Option and click the Finder Go menu to reveal a quick link to the folder.
