    I saw in some screenshots that for some people the volume (Macintosh HD or whatever) displays information (GB used/free) under the volume icon. How do you do that? I searched and searched but i cant find any option that enables that

    That doesn't work. Right-clicking the desktop only shows this:

    Right click the hard drive icon. I tried to maneuver my cursor so that you could see the hard drive icon...

    Read what the OP is saying. They want the GB free/used to appear underneath the icons. In this case you right click (or control click) Select "Show View Options" and check "Show Item Info". Right clicking the icon itself does nothing.

    My bad. I missed that the OP wanted the info under the icon.
