If you focus a file by single clicking on it, get info on the file my
hitting command-i ("the command key is next to the space bar").

To see file sizes in a directory: If you're looking at a directory
and there are not browser-like buttons at the top, click the oblong
button in the NE corner of the window. View the directory as a list
by clicking the middle part of the three buttons in one button
labeled "view". File size is one of the columns.
