Ulimately, I just want folder size to be displayed when viewing in details mode but it seems that isn't an option with windows 7 so the next best thing is when you hover the mouse curser over the file and the metadata pops up (I think it's called tooltips) with the file size in it - but this is a right royal pain: firstly, it takes way too long to pop up - I want it to pop up intantly. secondly, it pops up when you don't want it and when you do want it, it doesn't always appear and you have to move the curser back and forth and click in the window and move it over again and finally you just have to right click on the file and select properties. What would be ideal is for the pop-up to appear instantly on mouseover but only if I'm holding down a control key. does anyone know if this is possible to do or how to go about configuring it? Thanks.
