Hello, i managed to restore this (windows explorer handling zip) only by choosing "explorer.exe" as default program for .zip (start, default program, look for zip, change to explorer.exe)

I think it's more simple to do it that way.

Hello Magissia,

Thank you for your post.

That would be fine if it was only an association issue, but it wouldn't help to undo the tutorial. Plus, the tutorial will affect all users.

Starting from here xplorer˛ blog: How to unregister zipfolders for windows 7/8 I found the easiest way was to rename this key to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.zip\CLSID.bak *and* this key to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CompressedFolder\CLSID.bak Doesn't show up in "Save As" either.

Thank you MRCS.

That is much easier to do. I've updated the tutorial for this for both ZIP and CAB files.

Also, If you don't want to restart you can open task manager to kill and rerun explorer.exe

I haven't tried the .reg files yet, but why does Enable_CAB_Files.reg contain minus signs preceding the path names unlike Enable_ZIP_Compressed_Folders.reg?
