I know there are some files in my Home folder that start with a . (full stop).

How can I view them in Files? (I know I can use ls -a on the command line.)

Press Ctrl + H to view them. This is a temporary setting sometimes, and you can press it again to hide them.

There is also a right click option, which has the same effect as Ctrl+H.

If the setting isn't persistent, you can use this command:

gsettings set io.elementary.files.preferences show-hiddenfiles true

and to hide again use this:

gsettings set io.elementary.files.preferences show-hiddenfiles false
