imbedded win7 zip/unzip program

Aloha all,
Regarding the zipping &n unzipping of files without the need for 3rd party software.
when I rclick my mouse, I find the ability to "send to a compressed (zipped) folder or "Extract all".
When I rclick on a zipped file and click on "properties" the GENERAL tab has "opens with", drop box which gives the user the opportunity to select a program. My default is "Windows Explorer".
My questions are 1) is this correct? & 2) if it is not win expl., what is the program name of the imbedded zip/unzip program?

Hello Konadon,

Yes, that would be the correct default program for the built-in ZIP feature in Windows.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn
