    Pity, I had hoped for some clarity on this

    It appears there's none to be found, the term 'codec' being used somewhat 'freely' in the literature....

    Although video coding formats such as H.264 are sometimes referred to as codecs, there is a clear conceptual difference between a specification and its implementations. Video coding formats are described in specifications, and software or hardware to encode/decode data in a given video coding format from/to uncompressed video are implementations of those specifications....

    ....This distinction is not consistently reflected terminologically in the literature....

    This question has been asked in numerous places over the years on other sites- some of which go down Bree's route of video compression, and run into difficulties.

    I came across this- it may well be an obsolete solution which might not work on Win 10.. but...

    It also mentions someone who achieved this with Total Commander.
    A guy has created a free plugin for Total Commander from the Mediainfo dll that will show all the information that Mediainfo does in columns but I couldn't find any instructions in plain English to show how to get this plugin to work in Total Commander (a Windows Explorer replacement) or to even create custom columns in Total Commander.
    I think you have mediainfo:

    Not much to say, really. I have a folder of assorted media files for test purposes, and I happened to notice 'Video tracks' in the Details pane on the right. So enabled the appropriate column... which hopefully works for you..

    I'm not sure why users don't seem to like Diffractor.

    The fastest photo and video organizer for Windows.

    Can search copy and move to folders.

    I guess to find all h265 then you'd need to use the search term "HEVC"
