Hash Utilities for Windows

If you’re like me, you’re constantly going back and forth between windows and linux boxes, and if you’re in your windows environment, gui tools are king. Additionally, if you’re like me, one of the things you should do but don’t, is confirm the file hashes for programs you’ve downloaded online. Recently, I tried to change my wayward ways, and confirm these file hashes. In the past I’ve used the CLI md5sum, but I discovered a new GUI program, HashTab, which is a real time savior since the windows command line is clunky. HashTab is a fantastic gui tool to compare file hashes quickly. I especially like how the application uses your clipboard’s copy function to compare a file hash against the hash you found on a website (automagically).
