The screenshot of File Explorer below shows files and folders in my C: drive. What do I need to do so that folder sizes are also shown?

Windows 10's Windows Explorer and 11's File Explorer won't and most likely never will show folder size. They say it could "Potentially" slow the system down. But there are some apps out there that'll show folder size if you really, need to know at a glance. The one that I use is TreeSize Here's a screenshot. Here's another app called FolderSize And one more. FOLDER SIZE EXPLORER The rest is up to you.

I found a large number of small folders in my WindowsSxS folder, it is easier to analyze when the numbers are all up. That said, I don't really have the skills to actually do something at that level of detail. I rely (have relied) on built-in Windows utilities, but thanks guys (y)(y)

OK! That's if you speaking to me or Edwin. If me! The software is simplistic. Edwin's... Basic system usage.

I meant I won't be able to manipulate the file and folders in the WinSxS folder even if I were able to analyze them :(
