I’ve just upgraded to Yosemite (10.10.2) and would love to know if anyone can help me figure out how to make my finder window display a line at the bottom letting me know how many files i have in each given folder as well as remaining space left in my mac (like i used to have with version 10.9.5).

I know about the command+shift+i, but was wondering if there was this more fixed way of having that info always hanging out on my finder window!

Thanks in advance for your help,


To show this information in Yosemite, do the following:

  1. Open a Finder window
  2. Go to the View menu -> Show Status Bar
  3. Information should now appear at the bottom of the window.

Alternatively, Cmd ⌘ / will toggle it on/off.
