Search Files By Type

Post by vw98133 »

I just installed
XnView MP Windows
Version 1.4.0 64bits (Dec 12 2022)

Libformat version 7.132
I learn this tool through ChatGPT as I need to find any folds containing image files. As the starting point, I search images by type, JPG. For some reason, the search result yields a lot of entries in addition to JPG files. I have to abort the search after 80 K returned files. Is it a usage error? if so, how to correct it?

Thanks!

As mentioned in my post, the search returns files that are not in the jpg file type.
