PC users... How can I change the display settings inside a window where it will tell me file size and other stats?

Asked by creativejuices (490points) March 31st, 2009

I accidentally clicked on the bottom of the window and chose hide details. I can’t seem to find my way back to the details. I am using Vista.

I’m not on Vista, but on XP you are able use the View Menu to see details, rather than Icons, Thumbnails, Tiles or List.

Oh, found this tutorial

Try the Alt Key

@fireside: I am referring to the space at the bottom of the window (in vista) where it gives specific info on the chosen file inside of a window, like file or mp3 size. They in XP & previous versions of Windows this info was automatically populated in the area to the left kind of “outside” of the main window plane… I don’t know why they felt the need to change the display in Vista.

I think you’re talking about the status bar. Like @fireside, I’m not using Vista, but in XP you can go to the view menu and click on “Status Bar.”

@fireside: awesome! The alt key let me restore the basic “info” view! Thanks!!
