Forget about downloading some questionable 3rd party tool from a website that looks like it hasn’t been updated since the 80’s. Windows has a built-in tool for getting your MD and SHA hashes.
I’ve not long discovered this command, so thought it might be nice of me to share it with you.
First things first, crack open powershell (
Win + X, I) and navigate to the directory containing the file you wish to verify.
You can use command prompt too apparently, if you really want to. (I didn’t though)
Now, just smash the following keys on your keyboard for checksum victory:
CertUtil -hashfile <filename> <format>
<filename> is the name of the file you wish to verify and
<format> is a value from the following list:
That’s all there is to it! Nice and easy.
