OpenHashTab is a shell extension for conveniently calculating and checking file hashes from file properties.


  • Support for 28 algorithms, see Algorithms
  • High performance hash calculation
  • Native Windows looks
  • High DPI screen support
  • Long path support*
  • Multilingual (Consider contributing to translation!)
  • Check hashes against VirusTotal with a button
  • Hash checking against a checksum file (Supported: hex hash next to file, *sum output (hex or base64), corz .hash, SFV)
  • Hash export to file or clipboard (Supported: *sum output, corz .hash, SFV)
  • Optional context menu option for faster access
  • File associations and standalone mode

* to the extent Windows and configuration supports it. Enable long paths on 1607+ for better support.

System requirements

  • Windows 7 or later (x86 / x64 / ARM64)
  • 1 GB RAM or more (for efficent hashing of more than 512 files at a time)


Most of the actions should be obvious. Some not-so-obvious features are listed here:

  • You can select multiple files or folders, all files will be hashed, directories traversed
  • Double click hash to copy it
  • Double click name or algorithm to copy the line in sumfile format
  • Right click for popup menu: copy hash, copy filename, copy line, copy everything
  • The counters next to the status text is in the format (match/mismatch/nothing to check against/error)
  • Columns sort lexographically, except the hash column which sorts by match type
  • Selecting the tab on a sumfile will interpret it as such and hash the files listed in it.
  • If a hashed file has a sumfile with same filename plus one of the recognized sumfile extensions and the option for it is enabled, the file hash is checked against it.

Advanced features

Add a DWORD named LangIdOverride to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\OpenHashTab with your preferred LCID

Disable VirusTotal button for all users on a machine

Add a DWORD named ForceDisableVT to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\OpenHashTab with a nonzero value

  • MD4, MD5
  • RipeMD160
  • Blake2sp
  • SHA-1
  • SHA-2 (SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512)
  • SHA-3 (SHA3-224, SHA3-256, SHA3-384, SHA3-512)
  • BLAKE3 (256 bit, 512 bit)
  • KangarooTwelve (264 bit, 256 bit, 512 bit)
  • ParallelHash128 (264 bit) and ParallelHash256 (528 bit)
