Hex Editor


Hex Editor allows you to view, modify, analyze your hexadecimal data and binary files, edit, exchange data with other applications through the clipboard, insert new data and delete existing data, as well as perform other editing actions.

How to Use

(1) Open File: There are several ways a file may be opened by the Hex Editor.

  • File Open Command

Use the File>>Open command to open the standard File Open dialog. Select a file and click the Open button.

File you select may be located either on the local computer, or on the remote computer. Make sure your connection to the remote host is fast enough before opening the remote file in the editor. Usually, 10Mbit connection will be enough for most editing tasks.

  • Using the Right-click Menu in the Windows Explorer

Right click a file and press "Open in HexEditor" item from Super Shell to open selected file in the Hex Editor.

(2) Creating New Documents: The Hex Editor allows you to quickly create an empty document with a use of the File>>New command. Created document is virtual and is not backed up by any real file until you save it for the first time. You can use the wide range of editing commands to insert data to the file.

(3)Saving Documents: All changes made to a document always reside in memory. In order to apply them, you have to save a document.

When the document has any modifications, the "*" symbol appears to the status bar . Two of Hex Editor commands, File>>Save and File>>Save As... are used to save documents. The first command applies changes to the document file itself, while the second one allows you to save a copy of the current version of the file, which is the version that includes all changes, to another file.
