    FILE EXTENSION = QUANTITY OF FILES?

    Is there a way to find the quantity of files with a certain file extension besides counting each one, in particular, a mp3 extension? I have Windows 7 operating system.

    If you open file explorer, click the drop down menu (near top right) to show the list by details then sort by type to group them all together then hilite them all (click the top one then while holding the ctrl key click the bottom one) the total count of files will be displayed at the bottom left of the window.


    eg
    Don't believe everything you think.

    You could also use something like Everything Search.

    Enter the folder path and add *.mp3 at the end. The total count will be at the bottom.
    Ex. D:\Music\*.mp3

    Or from the command prompt..
    Code:
    dir /s c:\Users\YourUserName\Music\| find/c /i ".mp3"
    That would count all files in that location ( and sub directories ) containing .mp3 ( or .MP3, /i This switch tells find to ignore the case of text you are searching for )

    If you only want the count to be for files in the specified folder and not sub directories then dont use the /s switch.

    Code:
    dir  c:\Users\YourUserName\Music\| find/c /i ".mp3"
