    i've been spending the last month saving all my videos (a few hundred) as mp4s (they're all wmvs).

    can i type something in the folder's search box so it'll display any that AREN'T mp4 to see what i missed when i'm done?

    If you right click the window, there may be Sort By or Group By options and combinations that would get you what you want.

    If not, you can always search for something like *.wmv

    I'll also recommend Agent Ransack again.
    Just download and install it and it will add the search command to the right click drop down and give you options to search using various search criteria.

    This is what I do on my Videos folder...........
    1. Open Videos folder > click View > click Details.

    2. View > Sort By > Choose Columns. This is my columns setup......( see screenshot)

    Sort By.

    3. View > Group By > select Extensions.
    This is how the setup finally looks like.
    Group by.
