    Hi guys,

    I've seen several screenshots of people's desktops where their Macintosh HD icon had the drive's capacity and space left displayed right below it. How do I enable that? I would love to see how much hd space I have left at a glance below that icon. Thanks!

    In Finder, take a in your Menu Bar under View/Show View Options. In there there's a tick box to 'Show item info' – tick this and your icons will display the information you crave.

    Thanks a lot :) I've only been using OSX for a couple weeks, so I'm still learning the in's and out's.
