I'd really like to be able to view more than the first three example idf file names where an object is used in the ExampleFiles-ObjectsLink.html file. Is there an easy way to do that?

I made a CSV of all example IDFs, the objects in them, and the number of occurrences of each object. You can download it from this google drive link.

If you really need the results in HTML file, you'd need to call this python script with some minor code modifications where there are references to "3".

But if you're just looking for the list of files with a given object, you can do this in many applications. For example, using Notepad++, go to Search > Find in Files, specify the EnergyPlus:Object in the find field, use *.idf in the filters box, and point to the directory of IDF files.
