Is this tweak possible...?

  1. I'm using XP Professional and would like to view the size of files on the bottom of the screen in windows explorer without having to right click and hit properties (I used to be able to do this in Win 95, 98, Me, 2000). Is there an option to enable this in XP? Thanks!

    I have a Dutch version of XP, so i can only tell you that you have to go to View, and then check....eh Statusbalk.

    Maybe this screendump will help

    Just to to system properties>advanced>performance settings> and check the box that says "Use common tasks in folders".
    Another way is to go to view>status bar in an open folder and it shows the file size there but it only stays on that folder
     
  4. Sweet!

    Will the "like current folder" not work for something like that? Thanks for the input all!

    Yes, i was just writing this: :D

    "If you would like the same option for all folders.
    Just open Explorer, check the Status bar option.
    Then go to Tools --> Folder options --> View , and press "Apply to all folders". (hope i did a good translation)"
