WinMerge screenshotWinMerge is a software product designed for displaying and merging files and directories. You can use this utility to determine changes occurred between different versions of the same file, and then for merging them together. The application provides Windows Shell integration, a flexible syntax coloring editor, Unicode support, and visual SourceSafe integration. Regexp filtering for lines and file-names is available, as well.

WinMerge allows you to perform side-by-side comparison in order to find differences inside lines. The overall differences will be displayed in a location pane by a file map.

WinMerge supports multiple languages and integrates a wide range of powerful features that will simplify file merging, synchronization and comparison. The differences found inside lines will be highlighted for better visibility. Moved lines will be also detected.

WinMerge comes with a set of Regular Expression based file filters which will enable you to include and exclude various items. The application performs a fast and efficient comparison using file dates and sizes.

WinMerge provides version control capabilities, being able to create update patches for your applications. The program also resolves conflict files and offers Rational ClearCase and Visual SourceSafe integration. The 64-bit system architecture is supported as well.

In addition, WinMerge comes with support for file archives, plug-in support, a flexible and localizable user interface and an installed HTML Help manual. An online user manual is also available.


  • Supports multiple languages and integrates a wide range of powerful features
  • Allows you to perform side-by-side comparison.
