    If you go to the "View" tab and open the "Details pane" It will show you how many "items" are in a folder or a drive. It will not list them though.

    There are many utilities available that will reveal your folder sizes as you navigate through explorer. Folder Size 2.6 requires installation and will always reveal the size of every folder in the form of a pop-up menu. See it in action here:

    Hope this information helps you. Good luck.
