    If you single click on a file, you are presented with the total file size in both the details box (blue bar on left in my computer) and also the status bar.
    However if you want to find the total file size of a folder, windows will not display the size and you must go to the properties of the folder.
    This isn't a huge problem but it is becoming annoying having to go into the properties everytime I want to see the size of a folder.

    Any quick tweaks?

    Thanks,
    Patrick
     
  2. Hover the mouse over the folder? :)

    Thanks... don't know why I didn't know that.
    Strangely though... it won't show the sizes of some folders in windows while it will show the folder size in the properties.

    Well anyways, if anyone does know of a registry edit or something to put the folder size on the statusbar or details tab please post.

    Thanks again,
    Patrick
