I remember back in the old OS 9 days when you got info (Apple + i) on a folder it told you how many files were in the folder. Is there a way to get this info in 10.4?

View by List with the toolbar hidden tells you at the top. Otherwise, check the bottom.

Edit: I goofed. Any view with the toolbar hidden shows it at the top. I leave all folders as view by list, so I shouldda checked.

Also you can customise the folder view and check the option "Show Item Info"

Thanks for the advice. But I'm after in OS 9 when you got the info of the number of files in the folder it included all the sub folders too. That's the part I'm really after. But I'll try your advice and see if it fits my needs.

[Edit]You're advice smartyMAC wirks when the window is on icon mode. And it's really useful. Thanks heaps for it. But it doesn't incluse subfolders into it's calculations. Is there a way to do this?
