[solved] Get all files sorted by size in Nemo

Post by deepakdeshp » Mon Nov 27, 2017 1:36 pm

Hello,
I was looking to sort files in my home directory including the sub directories by size in a GUI. Is there a simple way in Nemo?
The find command will work but I was looking for a GUI solution.

Thanks all in anticipation

Change the view to List View.
Then click on Size in the size column. If you click again, it will sort large to small.

Thank you. Sorry, I did not state my problem correctly. I wanted files greater than 50MB in size and even the sub directories should be descended too while choosing the < 50mb files.
