I am using the search feature to search "Photos" for ".jpgs"
I get hundreds of results. Does anyone know how i can find out exactly how many files have been found by the search? I need to know the exact number eg 969 found

Allow the search to complete. Normally the number of files found is on the lower status bar.

with a command line :  http://windowsteamblog.com/windows/archive/b/windowsvista/archive/2007/05/09/advanced-search-techniques.aspx
By using the command line “cmd /b /s *Lars77*” 21 files was found and using “cmd /b /s /ah *Lars77*” the remaining 3 files was found.
In the Search Explorer (Start|Search) I used the following: Location “Everywhere”, selected “All” for type of files, selected "Include non-indexed, hidden, and system files", and entered “*Lars77*” in the Instant Search box.  8 files was found, among them 1 hidden folder and 2 hidden files.
