If you want to see the size of your folder and additional information, you can use the simple app Folder Size, which will integrate right into your Windows Explorer.

If you have big folders on your computer and are trying to figure out just how big they are, then one of the main problems will be seeing their sizes.

Windows sadly doesn’t offer this feature out of the box, so it will be hard to estimate the folder size. And that becomes even more important when trying to free up space on your computer.

To help you see the size of your folder, you can download this simple application called Folder Size. With this application, you can see your folder size without opening its contents.

It will integrate into your Windows Explorer and show up as a separate panel where you’ll also be able to see additional information about the folder.

Simple Windows Extension

It comes as an extension for your Windows operating system. The only thing you need to do to use it is download it, install it on your hard drive, and then enable it in Windows.

To enable this extension, you must right-click on the column headers, search for the Folder Size entry, and tick the box next to its name.

To use the application, you will click on the folder and have the folder displayed on your screen in a couple of seconds. It works quickly and is simple to use, as you will only need to click to get it done.

It’s smooth to work with and will work with your computer no matter your computer’s strength.

Doesn’t Work on Older Windows Systems

You must note that this app doesn’t work on older Windows operating systems like Windows 7 and older.

It means that you’ll need the newer versions to get it to work.


Folder Size is a useful extension to own for your Windows system.
