Re: JAWS 2018.1808.10 Reports Incorrect File Count in File Explorer

Or you can press Control-Spacebar to deselect the current file and then read the status bar with Insert-NumPad 3. I think the status bar will show the true count even if a file is selected. It will just say "1 file selected" after the count.

If you do a control-A and select all, you will be told how many files are selected and it will be the correct number.

Steve,

That's the way it has been ever since I was forced to switch to JAWS from Window-Eyes. You can't get an accurate count.

I have a folder which has over 200 files in it and JAWS always says so-many of 45.

This has been annoying me for some time now, but today it annoyed me enough to scare me. I have a directory that I absolutely know has fifty-one files in it. Sometimes when I'm looking at files toward the top of the list, JAWS says the file is numbered one of twenty-three, or maybe some other higher number first, then "of twenty-three," and if I'm further down the list, JAWS may say "so-and-so of twenty-nine." Never do I hear "so-and-so of fifty-one." This is in Windows 10, 1803, build 345, the window is maximized, I'm in list view, I even tried details view, same thing. Anybody have any i-dears? I'm all ears. LOL
