The Apple system hides files to prevent them from being modified or deleted by mistake. However, it is possible to view them via Finder through a command executed from the Terminal.
How to display hidden files on Mac
On your Mac, go to the window Go > Applications > Utilities and double-click Terminal. Enter the command
defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
and press the key Enter. Then press the key Alt, right-click the Finder and select Force restart. All hidden files and folders will appear. You can distinguish them, as the icons are slightly transparent.
