You can use fc DOS command, but no GUI.

For details:

C:\> help fc

Open in new window

Ultra Compare is a top notch text and binary compare program that handles any size of file for comparison. It comes in a Portable version.

I have WinMerge (lightweight and small files), Beyond Compare (decent) and Ultra Compare (best of the lot).

I agree with comment in ID42071494
The only thing that I would like to add is that it is best to download the main Portable App. This way applications are always up-to-date and you can even install these portable apps in Dropbox etc. and have a main application menu for them.

Here is my "installed" apps
