What app will automatically count files in folder?

Hi,

Is there a utility that will monitor and display the number of files in a folder automatically?

As I download files, the utility will show me the number of files in the folder.

I use xPlorer2 (zabkat.com). It is a very nice File Explorer (a working tool). In the status bar on the bottom, it shows me the number of files in a folder and the number of bytes of the files. It keeps this up to date.

I think Total Commander (ghisler) does the same thing, but I like xPlorer2 better.

Do you use it as a replacement or just as a utility from time to time?

I use xPlorer2 as a replacement. I do use Windows Explorer from time to time, and I use Total Commander occasionally. But 90% of the time, when I reach for "a File Explorer", I grab xPlorer2 and use it. I purchased a permanent license for renewals so I can keep it up to date.

When I add files to a folder, if there are 16 files I add, sometimes it says 15 until I hit refresh. Any ideas on that one?

I use a lot of different folders, so anytime I change folders it is up to date.  If I am in a folder and change or add a lot files, I just routinely hit Ctrl-R  as that is the refresh.

So I have not run across that particular instance that your describe.  That is likely because I am in and out of folders quite often.
