Tips and tricks to master your apps and be more productive.
Every now and then, I come across something while using my Mac, and I wonder if others know about it. I usually figure they do and move on. However, when something’s not the default behavior and is buried in a setting somewhere, it should probably be a tip. So, while this may seem obvious to some, it wasn’t to me, so here’s how you view the size of a folder in the Finder.
By default, the Finder can be configured with a column that shows file sizes. Recently, though, I was thinking about moving a large number of folders between cloud storage services and wanted to get a sense of whether I had the space to do that. The trouble is that the Finder doesn’t show the total size of the files it contains.
