    windows XP... on one of my computers, when i click on a folder, it gives me info as to how many items are in the folder, and how big it is in bytes. on my other computer, that little bar with that info is missing. . . how can i figure out how to get it the same way on both my computers which are running the same version of xp?

    i know it might not seem like a big deal, but it comes in really handy when transfering files and managing folders etc...

    In Explorer go to the View drop-down menu and check 'Status bar'.

    Go to Start, right click My Computer and choose Explore. On the Menu choose Tools>Folder Options, click View Tab. Under Advanced Settings make sure the box "Display file size information in folder tips" and "Show pop-up description for folder and desktop items" are checked.
