How Can I Enable File Features in Explorer Status Bar? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using the old Explorer interface (like old windows 98) in Windows seven, because it consumes less memory of my netbook and make it more faster and I use the status bar to see file properties during file navigation. In windows Senven, the file proprities does not appear (like file size, creation date), and even though I have selected an file, nothing is displayed in the status bar, instead the expression "one file selected". Is it possible to enable this feature, like enabling a flag in Windows Registers? (this windowws screen is "Brazilian versions".

    I Have a image of sambe folder showed in XP and Seven that shows the diferences described here.
