How To Convert Bytes To Kilobytes Online?


Byte conversion has a simple rule. Since all the data stored in computer is binary every unit is counted in the power of 2. Hence a common multiplier is conventionally set as 10th power of 2. Following are the same conversion rules for binary data.

  • 8 bits = 1 byte
  • 2^10 bytes = 1 kilobyte
  • 2^10 kilobytes = 1 megabyte. And so on.

Hence to convert bytes into kilobytes we need to divide the number by 1024 because 2^10 is equal to 1024.

You can also use online converter or Microsoft binary calculator for conversion.
