Windows 7: Windows Explorer Status Bar: does not show file size

I kinda got lost trying to follow this topic. Being that it started prior to the official Win7 release, has the initial issue been resolved? If not, can someone post an image of what it was that they could do/see prior to Win7? I think that the lack of an image in the first post has cascaded into the confusion I am facing.

thnx.

Hope this helps
This didn't help me, there is no "Show preview and filters" option under "Folder and search options".





Now what?
How can I show this infor bar?

(OS: Windows 7 Ultimate)

I didn't read through all 9 pages, because it was giving me a headache, but if you aren't seeing those options, try going back to the normal Aero theme if possible, instead of using the antiquated Classic theme.

In Aero theme, does the "Folder Options" contain "Show preview and filters" option?
Can aynone please tell it to me?
I don't want to switch to that theme, because all my settings resets when I do so.

Save your current theme, and then role back to it if the option isn't available. Why would you be using the Classic theme and missing out on all the enhancements and usability of Aero, not to mention the fact it offloads some of the UI work to the graphics card, instead of forcing the CPU to do it all?

Switching to Aero theme didn't change anything...

No it doesn't. It's Visual Effects, not Folder Options. The picture of said page is posted within this topic here:

My "Perfermance Options" dialog box doesn't look same with yours. Actually the only difference is that the "Show preview and filters" option is missing in mine!

Oh my. Thank you for the Classic Explorer reference. I detest when MS removes user control from its applications, and it happens too often. I'm now rid of the horrendous Details bar in WE, and the old useful Status Bar is back. Praise God for small mercies.
