Is it possible to create my own custom column in Windows Explorer when listing files in "Details" mode? Right now, I have:

Name              Date Modified      Type       Size    Hash

I would like to be able to see something like:

Name              Date Modified      Type       Size    Hash
something.php     8/1/2013 2:34 AM   PHP file   9 KB    dfb6e8d87ea4450a286a4aba90294aea
anything.php      8/1/2013 2:34 AM   PHP file   9 KB    dfb6e8d87ea4450a286a4aba90294aea
something2.php    8/1/2013 2:34 AM   PHP file   9 KB    dfb6e8d87ea4450a286a4aba90294aea

Or, maybe, how about a way to easily determine which files are similar?

Creating Column Handlers only worked until Windows XP and stopped working since Vista. A lot of tools like folderSize struggle with this change.

I use HashCheck Shell Extension. Its not exactly what you are looking for, but it works and its free. It adds checksums to the properties of a file/folder. Also, it makes comparisons fairly easy.
