  3. On the right, you'll see a fieldset named Comments. Click the checkbox left to Filter Comments.

  4. Click OK

For more details here is what the Winmerge documentation says about this option:

3.8. Filter Comments
Disabled (default): WinMerge compares comments in code, along with other content.

Enabled: This option optimizes comparisons by detecting comments in certain programming language file types (such as C++ and Java), and ignoring them.

The recognized file types and their comment markers are defined in the file, IgnoreSectionMarkers.ini, at the top of the WinMerge installation directory.

On the other hand, you can filter out the comments only files:

  1. File > Open...

  2. From the opened window, set the Filter: field as you want. Look below: Set filter field from
Select Files or Folders window - Winmerge Unicode
