Windows does not give size info for folders. Just files and drives. If you want to know the size of a folder you have to alt + enter on the folder then use the jaws cursor to read the size of the folder by arrowing up until you hear the size of the folder.

In File Explorer, make sure you're using the Details View. Move the selection to the file you're interested in, then use right-arrow until you reach the "size" column.

Subject: A Couple of Questions
I migrated to JAWS last month. I am still earning things of course.
My first question is for Windows 7, Windows Explorer. If I go through the list of folders etc. using the up or down arrow, how do I hear the amount of space that specific folder or drive is using?
Next I just used Duxbury for the first time since I migrated. I got a message asking me if I wanted to have the JAWS scripts installed. I selected yes and the Duxbury restarted as indicated. I was wondering if there may be other JAWS scripts which I may find of use. How do I find a list? Does Goldwave have a similar script? I did not get a similar prompt when I used Goldwave in the past few weeks.
Thanks in advance for any help.
