Windows 7/Vista: Compressed File Option Missing From Send Menu

I had a problem with Windows 7 where the Compressed File option was missing from the Send menu. Luckily I knew how to bring it back. This will work for Windows Vista also.

1. Hold down the Windows Key and press R or go to Start > Run.

2. Type regsvr32 %windir%/system32/zipfldr.dll

3. Click OK.

See if the Compress Folder option is back. If not you may have to perform these steps.

1. Open Notepad.

2. Click File > Save As…

3. Name the file Compressed (zipped) Folder.ZFSendToTarget and Save it.

Try that out.
