MacMost Now 717: The Library Folders

While you may never need to go into your Mac's Library folders, it can be enlightening to know what they are used for and what is inside. This is where things like fonts, caches, preferences files and application support files are stored.

    Hi Gary,

    One fairly common reason to access the User's Library is to delete a no longer needed Custom iWork Template. Since the User's Library became hidden in Lion, some iWork users have been disoriented since they were used to going there to manage their templates. Your great explanation should help with that.

    I use the "Library" folder quite a bit to transfer my Mac Mail folder back and forth between my iMac and MacBook Pro. I use IMAP e-mail, which should make this step unnecessary, but I have two e-mail addresses which folders that contain e-mails from both under "on my Mac."

    My mac will not reveal the library when I hold down the option key (6:13). ?
