is there's a way to automatically find peaks in an histogram?

I have a script to analyze data from a detector (the data is not necessarily repeated). right now I have to find the peaks manually which is time-consuming!
is there's a way I can get the range of the peak base in the x-axis automatically? and is there's a way to neglect small peaks (let's say small in respect to the ratio from the max peak)?
here is an example of histogram I'm working with

Have you tried the findpeaks function?

yes but I couldn't applied it for histogram, just to my original data (and it dosn't relevant)

You can do this using the islocalmax function.
% Sample data
rng default
x = randn(1, 1e5);
h = histogram(x);
% Retrieve some properties from the histogram
V = h.Values;
E = h.BinEdges;
% Use islocalmax
L = islocalmax(V);
% Find the centers of the bins that islocalmax identified as peaks
left = E(L);
right = E([false L]);
center = (left + right)/2;
% Plot markers on those bins
hold on
plot(center, V(L), 'o')

How is islocalmax() different than findpeaks()? Is it just that it's in base MATLAB instead of the Signal Processing Toolbox?
