I've re-installed my old system (10.7.5) and "things are different!"
Is there a setting somewhere I need to change? I always used to see useful information at the bottom of a Finder window in list view and in other views.
I remember a series of small Folder icons representing the path, into which I could drag files, or click to move to that folder. Also the total number of files, and number of files currently selected. Oh, sometimes the available space left on the volume as well!
Now there's nothing at the bottom of the window at all!
