Add option to always display filesize in KB to match Windows style

Description

It seems that Windows 8 always uses KB to show a filesize within Explorer. I'm not sure when this change happened, but it appears consistent in Windows 8 - from files that are just 1 KB to files that are 6 GB, the size is always shown in KB (see attached screenshot).

In order that files can easily be compared between remote versions in Filezilla, and local versions in an Explorer window, an option to *always* use KB when showing filesizes would be useful. Hopefully this isn't too laborious to implement :)

Thank you!
