Files can be compared in Total Commander by following a sequence of steps :

  1. Select the two files, from different windows or from the same window
  2. From the top menu select Files - Compare by content
  3. The differences between the files should be shown in blue (text files) or red (binaries)

Also, if your version of Total Commander is above version 7, you can use the CompareIt tool, which Total Commander will use instead of its internal tool. It will give you several main advantages:

  • CompareIt is accessed from the internal Folders comparison tool (useful if you are not using Synchronize It plug-in)
  • You can quickly compare 2 files, selected in same pane
  • CompareIt plug-in can be used to compare files within archives

If you don't have it and you find it useful, you can get this tool by clicking on the following:
