The Story About Ping was about a duck, not this website.

Folder Size

I came across a nifty little shell extension for Windows the other day titled Folder Size. This simple, but useful, app allows you to view the size of a folder (imagine!) in Windows Explorer’s “detail” view the same way you can view file sizes. It’s a handy way of seeing and sorting large folders at a glance without having to right click and choose “properties” to see the size.

I found it slowed down the display of files in a directory just a tad, but not enough for me to uninstall. It’s a handy little app that does something Windows should do by default.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
