    No, this is for normal (built in Status bar). No extended info on the right side.

    I did a test, and it does, in fact, include the size of the folder. I duped a folder onto my Desktop, then deleted it. just contains a bunch of icons ~33MB. The size of the folder is included in the total size as indicated at the bottom on status bar. So, it does work. Not sure why not for you, though.Folder size:
    Attachment 179600

    Total size:
    Attachment 179601

    P.S. - Don't have any items "Focused", or that will be the total you see.
    1) Here's what I see in my recycle bin. In the first image, I selected the first 4 items & both the number & total size is shown because no folder is selected. In the second image, only the number of items are shown, because it includes selecting a deleted folder:

    I also tried changing the view from details to other views, but the results were the same.
    2) I see that you have an additional "status bar", & someone suggested it was from Classic Shell. I have Classic Shell, but don't see any options to add a 2nd status bar to the recycle bin. Otherwise, the status bar from your recycle bin only lists the number of items selected...or am I missing something. My total size is right next to the # items selected & you have one on the right side & the word "Computer". So why is yours different?

    Might be from Classic Shell. I'm so used to seeing it, I never took much notice.
    I updated Classic Shell to the latest version. Now my recycle bin shows the total size of selected items. Thank you both!!
