Open Hidden iCloud Drive Info Window
# Opens the "Git Info" window for the hidden iCloud Drive
osascript -e 'tell application "Finder" to open information window of (POSIX file ("/Users/" & short user name of (system info) & "/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs") as alias)'

Copy and paste the command above into the terminal app.

  • You can then add an iCloud Drive shortcut icon to the Dock or Desktop by dragging and dropping the preview icon, from the info window to the Dock, or hold + option key and drag to the Desktop.
