    Hello,

    In a Folder Compare, with files aligned side by side by name, you can go to the Session menu -> Session Settings, Comparison tab. Here you can control the criteria of files. Set the criteria to Size Only.

    You can then use the Display Filters (toolbar or View menu) to view files with only Same (sizes) or Different (sizes). If this is all you need you can stop here.

    If you need to filter out these files and then view the remaining files with different comparison criteria, set the display filter to Show Same (equal size), Edit menu -> Expand All, Edit menu -> Select All Files. This would leave you with a selection of just equal sized files. Right-click and Exclude. This removes them all by name from the compare. You can then go back to the Show All display filter, and update the Session Settings with new criteria to continue the comparison with those files excluded.
