Enhance count of occurrences when finding
When using the find tool, it would be great to have the total count of occurrences and the current one found always displayed, something similar to what already available when searching in a browser (see picture below)
it’s not exactly what you want, but Search > Incremental Search is the feature meant to mimic the browser-style previous/next/count dialog:
It gives the text and the number of matches, but doesn’t tell you how far through. However, the Status Bar just below the Incremental Search bar will give you an indication of where you are in the document.
Other than that, we have a FAQ on how to request new features – you could request that the current match-number be added next to the number of matches in the Incremental Search bar.
This type of feature has also been discussed in the following places:

We in the Community are fellow users. Telling us you want the feature won’t tell the developer that you want the feature.
last year, @Alan-Kilborn linked to the still-open feature request here: https://github.com/notepad-plus-plus/notepad-plus-plus/issues/11118
if you want the developer to know that there are more people who want this feature, you need to add a comment in that open feature request.
