I thought there was a way to show filesize in actual bytes in Windows Explorer's Details View, rather than KB/MB/GB. Can't find it though.

If there is no way, what is the best Explorer substitute or replacement that will show filesize in bytes?

Total Commander will do this.

There is a 3rd party tool Size In Bytes which makes Windows Explorer display the file size in bytes.
