Windows Check Sum Hash Algorithm from CMD

Yes Window 10 (and Windows 7) had a built in Hash Tag Checksum tool. So when you download a file, you can verify that this file has not been tampered with. This tool is from Windows Command Line - CMD. It will generate a key for all these HASHES - MD2 MD4 MD5 SHA1 SHA256 SHA384 SHA512

Open a command line windows - CMD, Make sure you know that path where the download file is located. Verify the Hash Tag Algorithm from the website. Type in the following:


certUtil -hashfile C:\owner\download\MyDataFile.img SHA256


For example you can see I downloaded a file from this site (on the left) and it gives the SHA256 Checksum code you should expected when running the certutil.
