I'm grasping for the term but my memory won't allow it. So I'll explain, I just want to change how WinRAR displays filesizes in bytes to "something" like gigabytes for ease of understanding. Additionally, I would be grateful if someone would jog my weird memory of the word which should replace "something". Thanks.

You can just do simple maths for rough estimation like
412127124 bytes
=412127.124 KB (divided by 10^3)
=412.127124 MB (divided by 10^6)
=0.412127124 GB (divided by 10^9) and so on

While you should remember that 1024 bytes =1 KB (which i assumed 1000bytes for rough estimate of size)

Thank you. I'm not meaning to be rude but I do know how they're divided by 1024, I was using a Calculator before. I was asking on how to change its display so it would've been easier for me, I don't think that KB display is useful for anyone, it must've been so in the past in WinRAR's infancy where KB used to be the MB back in the day.

Only 2 years later and I have come to help you and everyone else out.
Open Winrar, Go to Options up the top, Settings, File list, Uncheck exact size it will turn from bytes to the a more knowleage size

    oh dear. making codes for nes is kinda stressful. i'm trying to think of cool ideas that haven't been thought of before. it's hard to be original, and i don't wanna make codes that already exist!

    I may make a post asking for code ideas, and hopefully that would make others happy :)

    Anywho, I've been using my modded Wii to play a few games here and there, and finally installed a custom Wii theme thanks to Larsenv helping me in a call (I have a family edition, and I don't wanna brick the nand since I can't restore it) Went with the basic "Black" Theme, since I'm a huge fan of dark themes, and it's less of an eyesore at night

    Larsen also helped me with my Dazzle setup, since the drivers for my model weren't online. I also helped dump that DVD with it, since I had a DVD drive.
