For years and years, it was standard for Finder windows to have a bar at the bottom of the window saying "__ items" and then telling how much space was available, etc. I don't care about the space, since hard drives have gotten bigger and bigger, but I liked the "__ items" inventory at the bottom of each window. I know I can get this info. by doing a command-I on the folder, but is there a way to bring back that footer with the "___ items"? Thanks.

"View" menu at top of screen, "show status bar".
That makes me feel stupid, but thanks. That option was hiding right in plain sight and I've missed it dozens of times. Thanks again.
