This is from 18 ways to view the ~/Library folder in Lion and Mountain Lion | Macworld, and it's obviously old, but you can try...

Change the hidden flag using Terminal: Launch Terminal from within your own account, type chflags nohidden ~/Library, and press Return. Your Library folder is now permanently visible. To make the folder invisible again, use the command chflags hidden ~/Library.

Try Shift+Command+L (⇧⌘L) to go directly to your user Library, BUT you must click on the desktop first, to switch the focus to Finder.

Actually I had missed that addition to the GO menu blush

Artie: That terminal command didn't work. I copied and pasted it so I would get the spaces right. And no change when I pressed Option. I'd rather do the Terminal thing so I don't have to keep remember what to click.

Uo for an experiment?

Uncheck the "Show Library Folder" box to which Urquhart directed you.

Power down (NOT restart) your MBP.

Start up, and recheck that box.

Fingers crossed.

I give up.

I'd suggest trashing the applicable plist, but I've got no idea which one it is.

LOL! Thanks anyway. It's funny that I was able to do it for my older laptop but not this one. I don't know if it was the same exact terminal command though. I looked up how to do it on my own and it was the Terminal command you gave me, so I give up, too. Knowing that all I have to do is press "shift" is helpful though.

Reinstalling Sierra or even rerunning the 10.12.6 Combo (or upgrading to High Sierra tongue ) will probably cure your ill.

(When I uncheck the "Show..." box in my High Sierra, "shift" doesn't work to show my library; only "option" works.)

Yeah, using the shift key is fine. I rarely have to do any of that anyway, Reinstalling Sierra, etc., is way too much trouble for such a little problem. Thanks, Artie.

I found these instructions on a MacRumors forum and tried it and it worked:

You can try to open Finder, press Cmd shift . (it is dot, period) which reveals hidden folders and, after that, on the left side, go to main folder (usually your name) and you will se Library folder grey shaded.

You can drag it on the left side holding ALT and CMD butto
n.


So now my library folder is on the side bar of Finder. No need to go to "Go."

This is the second time I've noticed this in one of your posts:

Based on your [color] and [b] tags, it looks to me like the "n" in "button" should be bold, but not colored, and yet the opposite is true.

What am I missing? confused

Just curious, Rita.

I thought I had tags pretty well figured out, but this seems totally anomalous.

I never know what tags are. It won't stick when I read about it.

Don't waste your time reading.

Just select what you want to be tagged, double-check to be sure that you've got your selection correct, and hit the button at the top of the box.

That's what I do but for some reason it doesn't always work. Maybe I'm not careful enough at times.

You misplace the end of your selection, usually omitting or adding a character.

Ain't no big deal to me, Rita, because you always make your point, even if it isn't in the most aesthetic fashion, but it would make grelber happier. tongue

And I still don't understand what happened in your earlier post. confused

Post #49244 , the one that started the whole tags discussion.

And, as a matter of fact, you've done it again!

Code:
[color:#FF0000][b]Which post is th[/color]at?[/b]

Per those tags, it looks like the "at" in "that" should be bold, but not red, rather than red, but not bold.

If [b] precedes [color:] it comes out as expected.

Is this a UBB.threads bug?

Aaargh!

type a line

Code:
this is a test



highlight it, and select red

Code:
[color:#FF0000]this is a test[/color]



now highlight from "this" to the end of the line (which therefore includes the /color tag) and select BOLD

Code:
[color:#FF0000][b]this is a test[/color][/b]


and that's how you cross-nest tags. spin the wheel of fortune to guess how it's going to mark it up.

(also just now I tried to bold "that's" and failed, because the parser still has a bold stuck in its craw)
