    This is one of the things I haven't figured out how to do yet on my mac. I miss this feature which was so easy in windows. Select multiple files and click properties and you get a file size count. If you do the same thing on a mac you get a number open for each file. If you need a cumulative total quickly its a pain in the butt to add each file.

    What am I missing here?

    Also, any way to display file size at the bottom of a finder window? When you click a file, it says "1 of X selected" and the amount of hard drive space free which is cool, but file size at the bottom would be nice to have.

    Command + Option + I

    This gives the total of all files selected

    And if you select many files (I'm not sure exactly how many but it's around 10 and more) , Command + I displays one window instead of individual ones.
