Windows 7 Explorer: how to show total size of all files in current folder?

In Windows XP Explorer one can turn on Status Bar which shows, among other things, the total size of all the files in the current folder, or if the cumulative size of the selected files. How do I get the same at-a-glance information in Windows 7?

Right-clicking and selecting Properties displays the total size of whatever files and folders you have selected. If you right-click the "background" of the folder window, Properties gives you the total size of the folder, including any subfolders.

"I haven't seen this mentioned but I highly recommend JdiskReport. It is a small Java app that actually gives you a disk space report that includes all sub folder for the selected drive or folder but then allows you to drill down into individual folders. It reports the size of each subfolder and of ""Files in this Directory"". I have nothing to do with this program other than being a long time happy user.
