Once you have installed HashTab, just right click on any file. On Windows, select Properties and you will see a new "File Hashes" tab. "File Hashes" displays all the configured hashes for the file. Use this as a simple MD5 checker, or select from almost two dozen options to perform a more advanced file integrity check.
Select 'Settings' to customize which hashes are calculated and displayed. You can hash other files for comparison. You can also paste in hash text so you don't go cross-eyed trying to compare hashes. HashTab currently supports at least the following hash functions with more being added each release: Adler32, CRC32, MD2, MD4, MD5, RIPEMD(128,256,320), SHA-1,256,384,512, Tiger, and Whirlpool.
NOTE: If you do not see any hashes in the File Hashes dialog, click Settings and make sure that at least one hash algorithm is selected to display.
