  2. Word Count Column in File Explorer

    I work primarily with RTF documents. I came across the option in Windows File Explorer to add a "Word Count" column to the File Explorer display. The "Word Count" does display but it gives no count for any of the documents listed in the File Explorer.
    From top to bottom no word count is displayed for any file created in any of the word processors I use. To date my search on the internet has not found a solution to the lack of word counts.

    how can I get a word count?

    Hi Carol, I'm Graeme, an independent adviser here to help.

    The method to find the word count would vary depending on what app you're using to view the script. If you're able to let me know what app you're using, I can provide the steps.

    Alternatively, you could copy and paste the text of the script into Word and follow the steps in the below article to display the word count:
