    In windows you can select multiple folders and right click and check the size of all the folders combined, on my mac, when I have multiple folders selected and GET INFO, it opens up a window for each corresponding folder and tells me the size of each folder not how much all are in total....aside from a calculator, is there a way to tell the size combined?

    Hold the Option key and "Get Info" will change to "Show Inspector"

    Another way to do it is select your multiple folders/files and use the keyboard shortcut Option Command I. It's the keyboard shortcut to Show Inspector.

    AFAIK that's the normal behavior, i.e., no way around it.

    Selecting multiple folders and then choosing Get Info produces multiple Get Info pop ups for each folder, not one combined one.

    ... unless you select more than 10 items, in which case it will automatically give you one inspector window for all the items, without using the Option key.
