Getting information about file folders

Note: This article has done its job, and will be retiring soon. To prevent "Page not found" woes, we're removing links we know about. If you've created links to this page, please remove them, and together we'll keep the web connected.

You can view information details about folders in a Files tool, such as the number of files it contains, the combined size of all files, and creation and modified dates.

  1. Right-click the folder and then click Properties.

  2. Click the General tab in the Properties dialog box.
