See File Checksum In Windows


For this tutorial we’re using HashTab which is free for personal use. Begin by downloading it to a location on your computer that’s convenient for you.

Double-click the installation file once you have it downloaded and accept any security warnings.
Thankfully, this program’s installer is straightforward and features no “offers” or other bloat, so all you really have to do is click through and double-check the installation location.
Once you have done so, installation is complete, and HashTab should now be installed.


In everyday usage, HashTab’s presence probably won’t be felt. It does not visibly change any elements of your computer. Right-click on a file, however, and you’re only a few steps away from finding out its true potential.


The context menu will not have visually changed, but if you click “Properties,” the next window will have. Depending on the file you’ve chosen to check, you may have “File Hashes,” “Digital Signatures” or both as new tabs.


“Digital Signatures” ties in nicely with a previous article of ours and only appears on installer files. If they have been signed, you can see the corresponding information through HashTab as well as the company through which the signature was generated – the companies capable of doing so are tightly regulated.
Unsurprisingly, “File Hashes” happens to be the main weapon in HashTab’s arsenal. The program is able to determine a file’s checksum in a variety of different hashes as well as allow you to compare two different files to find any discrepancies or differences.


Understandably, customization in HashTab is not a major focus. There aren’t many things you can tweak, but what you can is meaningful. You have a choice of twenty-four different file hashes to display, including common hashes like MD5 alongside more obscure hashes like Whirlpool, and you can enable them all at once if you wish to.


Should you prefer to display the hashes in lower case, a checkbox makes this possible. These are the types of changes you can expect to make using HashTab: nothing radical but small things that help make it more suitable to your needs.



HashTab does a fantastic job of implementing functionality into Windows in such a way as to appear native. For a program that’s free for personal use, HashTab is professionally understated, with few indications that it wasn’t built into Windows all along.


If you’ve ever pondered how to ensure file integrity and security before, hashes are the logical step to take, and HashTab appears to us to be the logical program to assist in doing so.

Solutions To Error “Cannot Delete Folder: The Directory Is Not Empty”

There are many problems I’ve come across while working the computer help-desk. One of the common issues I’ve encountered is one that involves folders not deleting properly. When this issue occurs, an error message appears that says “Cannot Deletefoldername: The directory is not empty“.
This problem can happen in Windows 8, 7, Vista, and XP. Usually, the problem can be solved by with a Chkdsk scan. This can be done be following these steps.
  • Type one the following based on your operating system:
    1. Windows 8, 7 & Vista: Click start, type “CHKDSK /F: in the Start Search box, then press “Enter“.
    2. Windows XP: Go to “Start” > “Run“. In the Open: line type “CHKDSK /F” and press “Enter.Note: If the folder you are trying to delete is located on a drive that is not your C: drive, add the drive letter to the end of the command. Example: CHKDSK /F E:
  • If you used a drive letter in the command above, you will get a prompt about dismounting the drive. Type “Y” for Yes and press “Enter“.
  • Most likely, you will get a message like the following:
Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)
Type “Y” for Yes and press “Enter” on your keyboard.


  • Nothing will happen just yet. You’ll have to restart your computer, to let the scan run. Once the scan is completed, try to delete the folder. You should be able to delete it just fine because CHKDSK has fixed the errors preventing it.

Chat On Facebook App Without Messenger


Facebook is taking its standalone app strategy to a new extreme today. It’s starting to notify users they’ll no longer have the option to send and receive messages in Facebook for iOS and Android, and will instead have to download Facebook Messenger to chat on mobile.
Facebook’s main apps have always included a full-featured messaging tab. Then a few months ago, users who also had Facebook’s standalone Messenger app installed had the chat tab of their main apps replaced with a hotlink button that would open Messenger. But this was optional. If you wanted to message inside Facebook for iOS or Android, you just didn’t download Messenger. That’s not going to be an option anymore.
Notifications about the change are going out to some users in Europe starting today, and they’ll have about two weeks and see multiple alerts before the requirement to download Messenger kicks in. Eventually, all Facebook users will get migrated to this new protocol. And you can bet some users are going to be angry.
The only way to escape the migration is to either have a low-end Android with an OS too old to run Messenger, use Facebook’s mobile web site, or use Facebook’s standalone content reader app Paper.
But now some apps are available on internet which can easily bypass forced installing messenger features.
Features
  • Use Facebook chat without messenger
  • Full access to chat like before
  • Never executed by the operating system, meaning no more battery drain and no resource eating at all (Facebook app itself drains battery)
  • Chat and send/receive messages in main Facebook app without Messenger
How to Install ?
