    Hello,
    If I correctly understand your files on desktop still be visible even after turning 'Hidden Files' on from Parallels Toolbox?
    Please do the next:
    - make sure that "Hidden Files" in ON in Parallels Toolbox:
    - run this command from Terminal and post output here:
    Code:
    defaults read com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles
    - then turn "Hidden Files" off
    - run same command from Terminal again and post output here

    no. its not the problem.

    if i create a new folder or any pictures are added on the desktop then if i clicked on hidden files options on parallel toolbox files are invisible completely.
    if i click back on hidden files are invisible but in hidden mode and once all files in hidden mode and visible when i click on hide desktop no files are hidden its not working

    example in pictures

    Did this ever get resolved for you? I'm having the identical issue.

    I did find a solution and I am not sure if you fixed it or not.

    Assume the user has tried chflags nohidden and those defaults write commands. If still not working, clear the attributes for the folders. xattr -c ~/here
