How can I check the size of a file in Windows?

There are several different ways to check the size of a file in Windows.

1. Open File Explorer, navigate to the file you want to check the size of and right-click on it. From the pop-up menu select Properties and the size will be shown in the General tab under the Size entry.

2. Use the command line. Open the Command Prompt window (Windows Key + R and type cmd), then use the “dir” command to list the contents of the directory. The size of each file will be shown next to its name.

3. Use Windows PowerShell. Open the Windows PowerShell window (Windows Key + X and select Windows PowerShell), then use the “Get-ChildItem ” command to get properties of the file. The size of the file will be listed under the Length property.

4. Use PowerShell’s Get-FileSize cmdlet. This will return the size of a file in kilobytes, megabytes, and gigabytes.

5. Use a third-party tool such as WinDirStat to check the size of multiple files in Windows. This tool can also show the amount of space used by each file and folder in an organized tree view.

Checking the size of a file in Windows is a simple process that can help you determine how much space the file is taking up on your hard drive. Using any of the above methods, you can quickly and easily view the size of a single file or multiple files.
