I was looking for all the really large files on my Mac and couldn't figure out how to do it.  After searching the web, I found this easy solution. When you have no other windows open click on cmd and F. This should open the finder window.

finder window 1

Click on the dropdown that says "Kind" and then select "Other" off of the list.

Once you do that, a popup of sort comes up and you have to scroll through it till you get to "Size".  Select it.

finder window 2

You will then be able to select a couple of items.

The first is you need to change the drop down from "equals" to "is greater than".  Then you can put in a file size value that you want to look for.

finder window 3

The result will start filtering in below.
