I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I use http://code.kliu.org/hashcheck/, it still works in Win10 and integrates into the context menu of the Windows (File) Explorer into properties. Select multiple files and then go into the checksum tab of the properties dialog and you'll get the checksums for all files.

I use DigestIT in Windows 10. Does MD5 and others. Right click on the file, and select DigestIT.

I use Lin's MD5 and SHA checksum utility.  The free version covers all the common hashes.

A nice thing about this one is that you can select only the hashes you need.  It can take a long, long time to compute the 256 and 512 bit hashes for large files.
