If there’s one thing that leaves me scratching my head with OS X’s Finder, it’s the lack of a display for the size of folders and subsequent files within them. It drives me crazy.
Yesterday, on LifeHacker, there was a snazzy little tip that turns on the size readings and I thought I’d pass it along.
- Open a Finder window
- Switch to List View
- Click on the Gear icon
- Click on Show View Options in the menu
- Check the box titled, ‘Calculate All Sizes’
Why this isn’t on by default absolutely boggles the mind.
