Windows 7: highlight size in folders

highlight size in folders

I want to be able to highlight pix, mp3's whatever,
but as I'm going down and more are being highlighted
it shows how much the size are increasing and the more I highlight the bigger the size shows.

I think in Win XP you were able to do this but I don't remember

Thanks in advance

sort by size within folders
Hi Forum! I've been on Windows 7 for a week. One difference I've noticed between 7 and Vista is I can't see any way to sort files in a folder (say, video, jpegs, or documents) by size. They are all automatically sorted by name. Is there a way to do this I just haven't found yet? Thanks, ...
