There are many ways to do it, two of them are:

1. Get spotlight to list all of the files

type anything into the spotlight window, then have it show all files and change the search criteria.  Then you can sort by size.

2. Use a combination of find, xargs and grep

 find / -type f -size +10 -print0 | xargs -0 ls -s | sort -n > file 

Open in new window

 the
 . . . -print0 | xargs -0 . . . 

Open in new window

is to account for file names with spaces.
