The hash function in the context menu of Windows 10

Let's look at what the hash function in the context menu of Windows 10 looks like, since not so long ago, most PC users had to puzzle over how to calculate the hash of programs used, and it was necessary to resort To all kinds of third-party software installations. But only the installed software for computing the hash is not always fully functional, and consequently, there were frequent errors in the calculations and various kinds of failures of the programs themselves.

For this reason, we suggest that you use the built-in application in Windows 10 called "PowerShell" to get the checksum of the file. In PowerShell, the "Get-FileHash" command handles the calculation of the hash. Here we note that the choice of the algorithm will be determined by the parameter "Algorithm". It's clear that all this is not as difficult as it might actually be, but it's only worth noting that if you often open the console -> enter the command in the console -> expect the result, it will take a lot of free time. That's why, we suggest that you integrate the hash command into the "Explorer" menu, which is at times more convenient to use.

In order to make your changes in the OS, you will need to use the tweak registry of Win 10, that's just to edit there, you'll just have an incredible amount of everything, and by this, we suggest you take and just download the archive from our server. Once you download the archive and unzip it -> merge the "AddHashContextMenu.reg" files. If everything is done correctly (we think you will not be wrong when merging), the changes you made to the system will be visible instantly.



So, if you just click the PCM on the file you are interested in, you can immediately see the "Get a hash" item in the context menu, pointing the mouse at which you can see about 7 items, each of which will allow you Select a specific action in terms of computing the hashing algorithm.



Please note that if you only choose one of 7 items, then the "PowerShell" panel will open where you can read the collected information and, if necessary, copy it.

Thus, the function of computing the hash in the context menu of Windows 10 can become for any user much closer and more practical to use.

P.S. Attention!!! In the archive there is a file "RemoveHashContextMenu.reg", which when merged with the system file, removes all additional items from the context menu and makes it the same as before.
