How can I see the size of all files in a folder?

How can I see the size of all files in a folder?

Most file storage systems at least have a column with file sizes. The only way I can find in DropBox to see file sizes is to individualy view a file's history. Ideally, I want to see a sortable column of file sizes in the list view. A total size for the current folder would also be helpful.

 

Is there some hidden easier way to show storage used by each file or folder?

 

 

Even the total storage "used" information is inaccurate since it combines shared storage from other accounts. This information would be more intuitive if displayed as "unshared", "shared", and "combined".

The help says login in look at file size Colum, if you don't see it hover over and select the size colum.   I do not see any Colum, nothing pops up or down.


Click the down arrow on any column header (other than Name) and you can choose Size, Type, etc.

I cant seem to get any file sizes from anywhere. Not even the info panel on the right. I would also like to filter all my file sizes. Can anyone advise?
