Forum Question: How Do I Find the Library/Application Support?

I am trying to remove a Community Tool Bar and the answer as how to remove it was to go to the Library/Application Support and remove any Remove any Community Tool Bar folder. I can’t find a Library/Application Support. Where do I find the Library/Application Support?

    I assume the problem is that you can’t figure out how to get into your Library folder. That’s a common problem for Lion/Mountain Lion users, because it is hidden. It is hidden because a typical user should never tamper with what is in the Library folder.
    However, poorly-created software, like this “Community Tool Bar” sometimes make it necessary.
    There are many ways to get into your Library folder. The easiest is to the Go menu in the Finder. You’ll notice a list of common folders there like Documents, Desktop, Downloads, etc.
    Now, with that menu open, hold down the Option key on your keyboard. You’ll see the Library folder appear there. You’ll need to keep holding down the Option key to keep it in the menu so you can select it.
    That will take your current Finder window to the Library folder. You’ll find the Application Support folder in there.

      I tried this but nothing happened. My version Mac OS Version 10.7.5
      Is there anything else I can try?

        That should show you the Library folder in the Go menu. Try it again. Press and hold Option, then click the Go menu. Library should be there.

        Charles,

        Another way to get to the User Library is to first select your User Home Folder in Finder (little house icon) and then type Shift-Command-G. Enter Library and click the Go button.
