File Sizes & Counts

Thursday, November 11th, 2004 by | Filed Under: File & Disk Management

File Sizes & Counts

Have you ever wondered how much space a set of files takes up? Or how many files were in a folder? Well, here’s how to figure it out.

If you’re interested in the number of files in a folder and / or the total size of the folder, just right-click it and select “Properties” from the resulting menu (you could also use Alt+double click ).

OK, that was a fairly well known trick. But what if you have a bunch of files in a folder and need to know the combined size of seven of them?

You could right-click each one, select “Properties”, and then add up all the sizes.

However, a better way would be to highlight all seven files in question, right-click them, and select Properties.


That will give you a combined file size of just those seven files.


If they’re not in order, use your CTRL key to select them. For more on selections, click the link below:
