Help ! I CANNOT send to a zip file > option is gone!!! (Win 7)

When I right click on a file and hit Send to >>>>>> there is NO option/icon for a zip file. The only thing that is there is the option to send to a DVD RW Drive.

How and where do I reset so that I can send my file to a zip file???? It's wierd > it's gone!!!! It was there before because I previously compressed files. Any brilliant ideas out there?

Many thanks!

Hello Yelapa, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Either option in the tutorial below may be able to restore this for you.

Send To Context Menu - Remove or Restore Default Items

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

EDIT:
LOL, we're thinking alike Derek.

Oh my, THANK YOU Brink aka Shawn, and Derekimo aka Derik >> for you quick responses and YES the zip along with everything is now restored back to square one. It's always a matter of knowing where to look for the answer, of which I had not a clue, BUT obviously I asked the right forum!!!!

Again, my sincere gratitude!
