How to show Hidden Files and Folders in Ubuntu 16.04

Today we are going to look at how to show hidden files and folders in your home directory.  In the video below I show the graphical way to do it in Ubuntu 16.04, in Ubuntu 18.04 in the top right corner of your menu you will find the option in a hamburger menu. 

However, there is an easier way.  A person simply click ctrl and h together in your home directory and it will show all your hidden files and if you press it again it will hide all your hidden files.  Enjoy!
