    Hi there @keitht1958

    You can find the total number of items in 1Password by clicking the Sort button at the top of All Items, like this:


    The number of items in any list is also shown at the bottom.

    I hope that answers your question fully, but please do let me know if I can be of any further help. :)

    1P7 had an option to show counts on the sidebar categories so you could quickly see at a glance how many logins, credit cards, identities, etc. you had. Would love to see this come to 8!

    Instead of using the well known standard implementation (count next to item in sidebar) 1PW8 uses one that almost no one founds...

    The issue was mentioned in the past (the v7 client used to conveniently display item counts in the sidebar), but 1Password support said this was by design and they don't want to clutter the window with seldom used information. However, I cannot be talked out of wanting the numbers in plain sight and consider the hidden and unintuitive display of the numbers a flaw and a removed required functionality I want back.

    The "cluttering problem" could easily be solved by a show/hide flag/option for item counts. A standard solution used by pretty much every application I now.
    The questions here and in other similar threads show that people are unable to find the hidden item counts without help from support or other users.

    Greetings @Tertius3 @viswiz. I'd be happy to learn more about your use case here.

    The sidebar already contains a good many elements - the user accounts, vaults, tags, archive + delete, categories (if you enable it)... I'm curious as to what benefit the item count provides to you in that location. If you can let us know why this should be moved from the sort menu, I'll file a request on your behalf. Thank you as always!

    Difficult to say. I will not justify why I want the numbers display. It just happens that while browsing or managing items in the desktop app, my view goes to the sidebar and misses the numbers present in the previous app. In this moment, I need the numbers to make sure I am in the correct collection or view with the expected number of items. If the numbers are not what I expect, some item went missing or I did move it wrongly, or whatever happened and I need to correct that. It's usually only one look for verification purposes, but now I have to actively look for the location to click to, than scroll down or locate the sort button and click it to get the number (which is not very intuitive).
