This worked in XP and I don't know if it works in Windows 7 but if you have 7 Professional or Ultimate you have the ability for XP Virtual Machine so theoretically it should work there. It is not anything I'd use as DEFAULT since when I do need more details it's usually 1 or 2 folders. YMMV, here is the link

The problem is that the details are not very fast to get from the file. So with too many selected files it will be very slow. That's why Windows limits the files to 15. If you have more than 15 selected files you get "Show more details...". Maybe there is some setting to change that 15 to a larger number, but I haven't seen such a thing.

What kind of details you do want to see?

If you just need the size, then Classic Shell can help: Welcome to Classic Shell
It can get away with showing the total size because the size is fast to get. It ignores the slow properties.
If you don't want the classic start menu, remember to uncheck it in the installer.

thank you, but is it possible to show the size ( Classic
Shell: Properties ) without needing to press Alt-Enter?

The size shows in the status bar. You show the status bar from the View menu in Explorer. Then you'll see:
