    How to get back the missing Library folder in Mountain Lion?

    Can someone tell me what steps need to be followed for getting back the Library folder which is missing in Mountain Lion. Have anyone had this issue before? Do I need to install it back again to get it back or so? Is there any other fix which will simplify the issue? Please help.

    Re: How to get back the missing Library folder in Mountain Lion?

    It is the default nature of the Mountain Lion OS where the library folder will be hidden for security reasons. Now if you wanted to be visible then just follow the below mentioned steps in your Mac,

    STEP 1: Go to Applications -> Utilities folder.

    STEP 2: Open the Terminal application and make sure you are in administrator mode.

    STEP 3: Type the command as “chflags nohidden ~/Library” without quotes -> Press Enter.

    STEP 4: Restart your Mac once (not mandatory) and now you will be able to see the Library folder always in your Mountain Lion.
