How do I list or find all the files owned by a particular system user or group under Linux or UNIX like operating systems using command line options?

man find

-user and -group are handy

You’re go to your terminal and you can type a command “ls -l”.

Find files owned by root user in “/” directory:
find / -user root
find / -group root
