The recycle bin in Windows 7 displays the individual file size, unfortunately there is no such option to find out the total file size of recycle bin.
It does not display the total size of the selected folders, it displays the size only if the shortcuts of any icons are present.
However disk clean up will show the total size of the files present in recycle bin.

Another advanced way to view the total size of all items in the Recycle Bin...@Shawn, that's great, thanks :)
1 - In Folder Options, turn on the display of hidden files and folders as well as protected operating system files.2 - Browse to your C: drive, open the $Recycle.Bin folder, and then right-click and choose properties of the Recycle Bin icon you see.
This will show the total size.

http://connect.microsoft.com seems to be strictly for developers. None of the MS tools they claim to be taking suggestions for looks familiar to me. When I search for "Windows 7" or "PowerPoint" or "Excel", I get nothing recognizable.
Is there a similar feedback site dedicated to the user (not developer) community?
