Find Large Files in Windows 10 Without Third-Party Tools

Previously, I wrote how to find the largest file and directory in Linux. Today, I would like to offer you a solution for Windows. It does not rely on third party tools. We'll use only the built-in features available in every modern Windows installation.

Create a shortcut in Windows 10 to open Windows 8-like search pane

If you are familiar with Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, you might remember its search pane which appeared from the right side of the screen. It could also search files on a network share if you followed this trick here, which Cortana cannot find! If you got used to searching from that pane and would like to use it in Windows 10, instead of Cortana, there is a good news for you. With a special shortcut, you can bring the search pane back to life.
