    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows File Explorer Not Showing Folder Size

    To show or not show file/folder size

    Is there a setting to use to show the size of folders in Windows File Explorer?

    Using One Drive is driving me one way for sure. I have many questions but this one relates to Windows File Explorer. Though Windows File Explorer gives the option of File Size, it does not show the size for folders, only for separate files. I am uploading
    folders to One Drive ( a VERY time consuming process, to say the least). I dare not select more than 2 GB to upload, because it will stall.

    When I drop folders in the Upload area, the folders are created in One Drive, but for some reason not all photos are uploaded. One Drive does not tell me it failed to upload, it does not show progress, it does not move all the files in big folders.

    It is very successful at failing. It fails almost without fail.

    So, having One Drive open, and the source folder open in File Explorer, showing side by side, I find that One Drive shows the folder size, but File Explorer does not.
    Is there a setting to use to show the size of folders in Windows File Explorer?

    It has taken me dozens of attempts for over a week now to move 220 GB of folders to my 1 Terabyte One Drive. More than a week. That makes for a weak system.
