    Windows 7 Porfessional I am missing the compressed folder option

    Hi
    So I want to compress a file and right click on the file and there is not the compressed folder option. Not sure what happened to this... Any ideas?

    Have a look at right click>send to>compressed (zipped) folder.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    If no success, see third item under "Here's How" for a .reg file that will restore Compressed (zipped) folder to the context menu.

    I think you're better off using a third party tool like 7-zip. More compression options than the stock zipper and it's free.

    Nice. 7-zip also has support for .rar and other compression types.
