Unfortunately, I was unable to get an accurate file count by switching to Narrator, and then back to Jaws as you suggest.
For me, insert page down seems to be the best way to get an accurate file count, until this bug is fixed.
Of course, I’m always open to other suggestions.
By the way, I always check to be sure my screen is maximized.

Switch to Narrator, which gives counts for both the current screen and the entire file list in a folder. Switch back to JAWS, and JAWS is now likely to report the desired information.
It seems to me there was a solution to this little problem, but I can’t remember it. JAWS 2019 in Windows 10 gives inaccurate counts of files. It will report that a given file is 1 of 25, when in fact there are many more than 25 files in the folder. I have changed the item type of the folder, to no avail. NVDA does this fine. The file is maximized. Is there a known fix?
