Size of Folder is displayed in two different parts of this Folder Size App including the left hand side list of folders and right hand side view of folders and files. These csv files can then be opened and manipulated in external programs such as Excel, Word and Notepad. Under the General tab, selected by default, the file Size is shown towards the middle.

If we limit ourselves to Explorer I see where you are going with this.
You can change the size notation of the size column in Explorer with the click of a button from bytes to megabytes, kilobytes or gigabytes. The application will display the sizes of the folders and files and also the percentage of the total disk size that they occupy. Also the beautiful colour rectangular to know the file and folder sizes just on a hover of glance. The column for size is already there for files so it would just be a matter of writing the code to calculate the folder size when the option is enabled. Also, note that I'm only saying it works for me. For this reason was created as a freeware application.
It is essentially a task-based file management application that is central to the functioning of Windows. Slows down the entire machine as it does extra calculations on every file operation. Got me back 12 gigs. So why not use anything else? I really hate this arrogance. This is not really good if your focus goes that way usually. That is why I hated the shell extension that you proposed.
This can be very time consuming when you're trying to determine which folders on your drive are taking up all the available disk space. This is the total size of Desktop apps, not Windows Store apps. You can poke around for a while and next thing you know you're down 2 gigs or more. It found only few megabytes to cleanup while the Installer folder took a lot more than ten gigabytes. If you've got a bunch of folders with old crap in them, but you don't want to delete them, compress. This works with folders as well. I really do not recommend you to use it.
I have used Directory hard links for Program Files Folders as well without issues. One thing I forgot to mention duh is if you click the 'Size' column in FolderSize, it will arrange by size. Another way to see the size of a folder is to place your mouse cursor over the folder and wait for the pop-up tool tip to appear. When arranging folders or finding large files and empty folders, you first need to know the size of the space occupied by each folder. I agree with Synetech that this doesn't answer the question, which was whether Microsoft had relaxed its restriction on creating columns in explorer or if there was any software that managed to do so.
Separate installers are available for both 32-bit and 64-bit systems, be sure to download the right version. This got me back 12 gigs. Alternatively, you can use the vssadmin tool from an admin command prompt to to do important things. How to guide might also interest you. Caution: make sure that the Alt key is held down, because Enter alone is the keyboard shortcut to open all selected files! Edit: Apparently this does not work as well as hoped. So - nobody asks to have it a front-end Explorer feature! In such situations, one can use third-party disk space analyzer tools those not only show the folder size but also help in removing the duplicate files; by analyzing the size of the folders. I would say that tool is just stupid.
I propose the freeware tool. Right-click on Folder Size icon in System Tray to see options to close the program and also to disable pop-up window. Here we are using Free version which is enough to find out the folder size individually including Pir chart. Actually, it's probably best to disable this feature altogether to improve performance when using Explorer. Thanks for helping make community forums a great place.
WinDirStat is oldish but is Open Source, and it works great in Windows. When Folder Size is running, a small icon of it will appear in the system tray. It allows you to save file and folder lists to csv files for viewing in external applications like Excel and Notepad. Here is the link to this software. So I'll show a lightweight free program that should do the trick! There are a lot of standalone tools that are better to use.
