I need a tool that will show me the sizes of every folder, I have to right click properties to verify the size of a folder in windows explorer. Is there a better way of doing this?

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

I back up the 2 other guys: I too use Treesize. You can blindly grant them the points :-)

I will also stand by TreeSize. Awesome little app.

My preference is an old app called DFolder.

It integrates into the shell. When you view the properties of a dirve or folder, you get a Size tab
and will show you all the folders with their size. You can sort it by Size if need be.

Haven't used TreeSize Pro, been using SizeExplorer Pro for a few yrs now and quite like it. SizeExplorer look a little cleaner than TreeSize Pro, imo, but may not have the gazillion reporting features, a lot that I wouldn't use, that TreeSize Pro has.

Screenshots for both...

"Boo" on Microsoft for not building this basic functionality into Windows Explorer.
