Context menu integration
Although most similar applications come with a dedicated interface, HashTab adopted a different approach and can be accessed via the Windows Context Menu, once the user clicks on the “Properties” option.
Verify file integrity
In other words, if you wish to check file integrity, it's enough to perform a simple right-click on the file you want, hit “Properties” and look for the “File Hashes” tab.
Three different algorithms to work with
HashTab provides three different algorithms, namely CRC32, MD5 and SHA-1, with all values displayed straight in the same window.
In addition, the application comes with a handy comparison tool at the bottom of the screen. Just pick the file you wish to compare using the adjacent browsing button and the information is displayed in no time.
Testing its performance
Since it integrates so well into Windows, the program remains incredibly light on computer resources all the time, so it won't slow down the operating system in any way. Things are slightly different when it comes to larger files, but one thing is for sure: you can safely use it on older machines as well.
Although everything is so intuitive and easy to use, there is no help file included in the package, which means users looking for more information have to use a search engine for the job.
A reliable and efficient file hasher
Other than that, HashTab is quite a handy tool that may become a must-have for many users out there. It works very fast and it integrates into the “File Properties” menu so you don't need to use an external tool.
