Hello stupot65,

You are referring to the context menu that appears when you right click on a folder --> send to --> compressed (zip) folder right?

There's a guide at the following link that will help you restore that issue:-

How to Restore Missing “Compressed (zipped) Folder” Item in Send To Menu in Windows XP, Vista and 7 - Tweaking with Vishal

Hope that helps!
