Increasing the limit of file sizes that are diplayed in Windows XP

Hi, When you select a list of files, Windows XP gives you the total amount of space they are using, but only while less than 101 files are selected. When you select more than 100 files, then the total size isn't displayed anymore. I've looked into the folders options and into the registry to no avail. Is there a means to increase that limit? Thanks in advance, Mark

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

As far as I know there isn’t a way to increase that limit. However there is a workaround. When in the folder, click on the View drop down menu, then click on Status Bar. You’ll see a new grey bar across the bottom of the window. This will show you the number of files you have selected and the total size. As far as I know the status bar has no limit to the number of file it will show you.
