    Suggestion for adding one little tool to Parallels Toolbox (Mac): a show/hide hidden files.

    The code for that should be minimal. It consists of bundling, within an app, a switch to choose one of the two shell commands:

    defaults write AppleShowAllFiles YES killAll Finder
    defaults write AppleShowAllFiles NO; killAll Finder

    There are several available stand-alone apps for showing/hiding hidden files in macOS, several of which have icons that can reside in the Mac menu bar. But why the need for a separate app when just clicking on such a tool in Parallels Tools would suffice?
