    How do I get the desktop folders to show number of items inside? I've seen it before in screenshots. I got my Hard Drive to show available space but the folders don't show the contents inside. Look at my screenshot.

    pull the folder you want down to the stacks, then you can see previews of folder contents

    what stacks? will it display the contents under the folder name on the desktop?

    EDIT: Oh, they're alias folders. I guess they won't show it.
