Add ‘Extended Version’ ‘Hash Checksum Info’ In File Properties Share
PDF Print E-mail

The massive world of internet contains tons of applications, tools and software. Sometimes, it may happen that you are not be able to find which one is a fabricated tool, and which comes straight from the developer. Developers mostly generate the Hash of a download bundle, which is quite useful in checking the file integrity of something that you are about to download. Previously, we covered Hash generators such as HashSlash and SFV Ninja, stand alone applications that generate Hashes and check the integrity of files. FilePropsMan is a Windows Explorer shell extension that adds two tabs, namely Extended Version Information and File Hash Information, to the Windows Explorer File Properties menu. It lets you view deatiled version information about the file included by the developer, as well as generating CRC32, MD5 and SHA-1 Hash codes to verify against the ones provided by the developer.

After the installation of FilePropsMan, you might have to restart your system once to be able to view the two new tabs in file properties. The first tab is named Ext. Version info (Extended Version Information), that allows you to view the File Version, Description, Copyright Information and other information such as Comments, Company Name, File Version, Product Name, License etc.

The second new tab that will be added is named Hash Information. It lets you calculate Hash functions using CRC32, MD5 and SHA-1 checksum protocols, and copies them from within the tab to compare them with the ones provided by the developer on the product page. If the codes match, that means the files are in their original state. If the codes differ, it means that the files have been tampered with and are not safe to download.
