Win 7 HP Native Zip/Unzip Program

Does Win 7 HP have a built-in zip program ? I've been using 7zip, but being the minimalist that I am, I'll trash it in favor of a built-in.

Hello Bej,

All editions of Windows 7 include a built-in ZIP feature. However, 7-Zip is much better.

I jumped the gun with the question. "Help & Support" provided the answer, too.
I wasn't sure if 7zip had added to the "Send To" or if it was a native program.
Appreciate your time.....

You're welcome. 7-Zip will have it's own context menu entry instead.
