Verify Checksums seems to need file to be named correctly
Open, LowPublic


When downloading a signed checksum file, the file is not always named the same way. For example, the signed PuTTY checksum file.

Decrypting and saving this creates the file 'sha256sums'. (as opposed to 'sha256sum.txt')

Right clicking on sha256sums and choosing 'More GpgEx options -> Verify checksums' doesn't work for me, but if I rename the file to 'sha256sum.txt' it does. Given that I have selected the file, it seems that the name check doesn't serve any purpose and the error returned doesn't suggest that the filename was the issue.

I agree, we should look for additional names when verifying checksums.
