Fred has a folder that contains, perhaps, 200 Word documents. Many of these documents have a hundred or more pages. He is looking for a simple way to display a list of all the documents in the folder along with the page count of each of the documents.

Figure 2. The View tab of the Folder Options dialog box.
After you modify the view to include page counts (or any other items you want included), you may need to close the Explorer window and reopen it to make sure you can see all the information you requested.
