At this point the 'Cells Search Results (#)' is added to the bottom of the Explorer File section and is Highlighted ( Selected ) showing the total number of Orphan Cells found. In addition the Orphan cells are shown selected in the View.

The  'Cells Search Results (#)' can also be expanded to show the selected Orphan cells and by selecting the heading ' Cell ' will select that particular Orphan cell in the View should you wish to locate. Select 'Cells Search Results (#)' again will select all the Orphan cells.
