This actually worked on two of my systems when the results were not being shown.

Search and Indexing Troubleshooter

Note if you have not indexed your computer's search locations then index them. Also if run does not work then open cmd and run command control.exe to open Control Panel.

[Update 4/15/2022] - okay, so the *.jpg search on my 8TB folder was only showing ~14,000 results and now showing over 1.2 million results. that is good!! I did reset the Ownership and Permisson on my 8TB drive because it was messed up and Indexing and Search indicated a permissions issue might be at fault even after doing the troubleshooting index search wizards]
