On my PowerBook, my user/library/Application Support folder is dimmed. I have to do a search for it to find it. <br><br>I compared the permissions to my desktop and they are the same.<br><br>I repaired disk permissions and that did not change it.<br><br>I can read and right okay in the folder. It is the only Library folder like that.<br><br>_______<br>

Sounds like you've somehow managed to hide it. I was going to suggest that it would likely be very easy to change back, but, upon looking, I don't see a place to change it in the Get Info window.<br><br>

Try using FileBuddy to change its visibility.<br><br>

Glad it worked. Why it dimmed is another question for the WTF pile.<br><br>
