Hi All

Am getting frustrated using the finder and wondered if someone could help me out.

Using command-F to bring up the Searching "This Mac" window, I want to search for all images with a particular file name. Once I have the list of images I then want to see the file sizes and choose the largest. But the window only shows Name, Kind and Last Opened, and I can't seem to add File Size.

Any info would be really appreciated.

many thanks

Change your view to list mode, then you can both see and sort on File Size.

Is that in the Searching "This Mac" window. If I open an ordinary window I get File size, but not when doing a search.

I am running Tiger, but List mode is available in the CMD-F window on my Mac. It is one of the three view mode buttons in the upper left of the window.

Yeah I'm sure I used to use it before I installed Leopard.

Now there are four view modes, and when a search window is open, you can't use columns mode, just icons, list or the new cover flow mode.

When using list or cover flow mode there just doesn't seem to be any way of adding a new column with something like file size.
