Eclipse: hiding files in Package Explorer

It is very important to have your Eclipse IDE as optimized as possible. It is essential for me to see all "hidden" files and directories such as .gitmodules, .project, .classpath, but I do not want to see .DS_store as it is useless to me.

In your Eclipse > Package Explorer > click a small triangle drop-down > Filters..
Add ".DS_store" and any other file patterns comma separated.
Press OK to save.
