of the Finder window simply open the Finder's Preferences (not the System
Preferences) and select your Home folder and Hard Drive - I guess Apple now

/Library folder and /System/Library folder but Apple still keeps the
~/Library folder hidden.
To permanently reveal the ~/Library folder, in Terminal:
chflags nohidden ~/Library
