Solved Show The Total Files' Size In A Folder In File Explorer

Hello,

I installed Windows 8.1 on a different hard disk, and am setting my most preferred settings on this new installation. According to the attached picture, I noticed that I was able to add this bottom grey bar that states the total size of the files in this folder only (kinda like how it was with XP), and completely forgot how to add this feature to File Explorer.

Do you remember how I did this?

I just read my post and it actually sounds a little confusing. What I meant to say is that I've been using Windows 8.1 and have managed to add that bottom part to File Explorer in Windows 8.1. I installed a fresh version of this same Windows 8.1 on a different computer, and am trying to remember/research how I was able to add that grey bar down there. Have you managed to come across anything like this anyone? Does it ring a bell?

Thanks for the reply,

It's actually right under the Status Bar, and it's a compressed version of the Details Pane; all it shows is how many items are in that folder (on the left) and the size of the items in the folder (where the arrow is pointing).

Any other ideas?

OH I just figured it out:

I had Classic Shell installed on the other Windows 8.1. I just set it up here now. Everything looks great once again!
