Or it could toggle automatically by the largest value to display:

If the largest value would need to omit a comma, ZTree could automatically shorten all values by 3 lowest digits and display 'M' as suffix.

Only Con I see: Looses resolution for smaller files - but are they on focus in this case?

Shortening should be determined for each window separately, consistently in each window.
E.g. if the Alt-K values exceed 999,999,999k then values like 999,999M are displayed.

In this case, if the user would switch Alt-K from (branch) to (dir ) and the largest displayed value gets <= 999,999,999k
then ZTree automatically switches back to 'k' suffix.

Same for the File window, to be determined separately.

PRO: neither a Configuration option nor a Toggle command needs to be implemented.
