Customizing Windows Explorer
In Windows XP, there were several utilities that would enable me to modify Windows Explorer so that I could add a column that would show me the size of a folder - meaning the size of all files contained in the folder and in all sub-folders under that folder.
When I try to run those utilities (such as Berger Folder Size or NirCmd (a small command-line utility that adds some columns to Windows Explorer), they produce a message stating that this version of Windows no longer allows modifications to be made to Windows Explorer).
Does anyone know a way to modify Windows Explorer so that I can easily see the total size of a file folder and all files contained within all sub-folders of that folder?
I know of some good freeware utilities that enable to me run a standalone version that shows the silze of all file folders (such as TreeSize). But it is so much more convenient if I can see the size within Windows Explorer without having to restart a utility each time I want to check on the size of the folder.
