This is about verifying a SHA256 hash of a file against the hash in clipboard.
AFAIK there aren’t many tools that can do this.
Downloadable files are often provided with a SHA256 hash.
It would be nice to copy that hash to clipboard, download the file, run some a checksum tool that calculates the SHA256 and verifies the hash with the one pasted from clipboard into a hash-box within that tool.
For those who are, like me, not familiar with with scripting and/or command line matters: there is a small tool named : MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility
There is a free version, but the pro version (one-off usd.9.99 only) provides some extra features, like context menu support.
Regretfully there is no separate portable version, but it is very easy to make one.
Install the software, copy the “MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility“-folder to USB or anywhere else on the HDD and it is a portable version.
Pro version: double click the .exe and tag “Integrate to Windows Explorer Context Menu” under options.
In the added screenshot:
- copied the installed folder to another location (in this example D:\Downloads)
Note it is just a very small file..
- double click the .exe
- uncheck what isn't required
- Pro version, options : integrate with Windows Explorer context menu (also works for Opus of course)
- run it on a downloaded file
- paste hash from website
- click verify
Just a tip.
