Windows 7: Restoring "extract all" to the context menu of Windows 7

Restoring "extract all" to the context menu of Windows 7

"extract all" is a standard context menu command in windows XP, Vista and 7. But this command seems to be overriden when one uses PowerDesk, replaced by the PowerDesk Zip/Unzip utility. I would like to have the option of the original windows command back in the context menu, but don't see any way to restore it. How can I do that? Thanks. FSM

Hello FSM, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if downloading and merging the ZIP option in the tutorial below may be able to help with this. It restores all of the default associations and settings for ZIP file extensions.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Welcome to Seven Forums fsm. If Brinks method doesn't work, try this:

Start> In search box type Run and press enter

In the Run box type:

regsvr32 /u zipfldr.dll

Press enter

Then type:

regsvr32 zipfldr.dll

Press enter

See if the choice has returned. A Guy

just select a zip file and right click on it then choose open with, and then choose default program, then choose (or browse to) microsoft explorer.

EDIT: and tick always use this program.
