Probably not the right place, but here goes.

I am trying to find a way on a Windows PC to display, show or to easily find the Compression Quality of a Jpeg Image File.
Ideally, a 'Right Click' context menu type of function or maybe show in Folder Details View.

Thanks in advance, any suggestions are welcome

depending on what Windows version you have, what app is being used by Explorer to render the image AND if the image creation tool/device stored the compression in the EXIF data, it is going to be in ...

RC -> Properties... -> details tab.

The most frequent scenario for wanting this is with only a browser running.
Upload function "Browse to File".
Second most common would be Windows Explorer view.
Most probably with No applications open.

Source of image and program that made it etc is unknown and pretty random therefore so is Exif details.

I am using Windows XP Professional.
However the requirement is for all OS versions from XP onward.

There's a command-line utilith called Jpegdump which I think will do what you want. I've never used it myself, but I have come across it from time to time.

Try this link:
