I have a solution plugin, that is a workflow.  (might be the same thing... still learning this system).

I am running an advanced find, which displays 5000+ results, and I'm only able to display 50 items per page, and I cant seem to find a way to display more.  Is there a way to run the workflow on these results without having to go through each page?

Personal Options, first tab, records per page setting can go up to 250 per page.

(the cog icon at the top right).

You can only run a workflow on a page of records at a time.

It is one of the product limitations that CRM has for displaying any record that crosses 5000 limit on an entity. If you increase the page size[No of results per page], it will still take you to the page until 5000th record and will throw an error something like Paging cookie is required when trying to retrieve a set of records on any high pages, on the page after 5000th record.
You can handle this with few custom code solutions available in the following links:

I would suggest, involve a CRM developer and share these links with him.

Hi,

Not sure if you're having any technical knowledge on C# and CRM SDK.

I would suggest you create a simple console application which reads all the records and runs workflow against each.
