Tip O’ The Day

So, say you have a certain program who’s developers figure it’s alright to pollute users’ home folders…

What to do?

$ /Developer/Tools/SetFile -a V  \
  ~/Documents/Microsoft\ User\ Data/

There, much better.

  1. I can never remember how to do that and I actually needed to make a few folders/files like /sw/ and /opt/ invisible (Fink and Cisco making things messy).

    You can also just move it to your ~/Library/Preferences folder and it will work from there.
