Or order them by date / time?
Or order them by date / time?

Press the 'T' key for the toolbar if you don't see it, then choose the sort order in the lower left corner below the grid.

Thank you, yes, I had looked there already, but I cannot find anything of those items (creation date, file / image size) neither in "Sort" nor in "Filters" nor in "Attribute":
So there is no way to sort by file / image (resolution) size? Actually I would not believe that.
Oops, I wouldn't have supposed that...but no such option, very odd.
Apparently, not enough people requested it. To file a request, go to https://www.feedback.photoshop.com. First try to find if somebody else already filed it. If so, don't file it again but add your vote to that one.
You could view files in your specified Size ranges by using multiple Smart Collections-
MP >1<2, MP >2<3, MP >3<4, etc

Great ideas, thank you, I will do it like that.
