Ther is a add-on, develloped by me, that allows the reading of
status bar in Windows 10 File explorer...
You can get it at:

Normally, as Gene noted, you should be able to use
NVDA+end / NVDA+shift+end to read the status bar, however there
is a bug preventing that from Working in File Explorer in
Windows 10 - https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/6769
One thing you can do, is use NVDA's next and previous
object commands (NVDA+numpad 4 / NVDA+shift+left arrow for
previous, NVDA+numpad 6 / NVDA+shift+right arrow for next).
That will move object navigation through the items in the
list. One quirk is it won't announce "selected" for items
which are selected, but will announce "not selected" for items
which are not selected. (It's not so much a bug as, 99% of
the time people are moving through the list one item at a time
and don't want to hear every item as selected).
use tab and shift+tab to ensure
you are in list view for selecting files.

nothing is difficult unless you make it appear so.
