how to find large files

Is there an easy way (like in XP) to find all files over a certain size?
I've spent an hour trying to do it, and no luck.
This should be much more intuitive and easy than this.
Seems like we're going backward.

Click Start Menu
Click Search
In the resulting window...
Click the little down arrow button under the back button
Where it says Title, click and select Size
Where it says Equals, click and select Is Greater Than
Where it says Zero, clck and Select Large or whatever size range you're
interested in

Now what I'd like to know is why you can't save a search folder except via
the classic menus. Time to file another bug.

Thanks much! I don't think this will win any points for ease of use though.
