    Restore Compressed Folders context menu items in Explorer

    Ok, so we've inadvertently disabled the Compressed Folders options from the context menu for all users (including us!). The worst part about it is we don't have any GPOs or registry settings (that we can find) that should be removing/hiding these options.

    Where can we look to start troubleshooting this? The only guides I've found to disabling it in the first place are full of registry key changes and DLL deletions- not the sort of change that can be made accidentally.

    Cheers

    What's it missing from? Send to? New files?

    I may be misremembering, but I thought there were options in the root of the context menu. Now that I read your post I realise I might be insane and that it's just missing from SendTo... It looks like I need to copy the shortcuts from the Default user profile into the roaming profile of the logging on user to make them available.

    Sometimes it takes a desperate forum post to kick the brain in to gear :-)

    Pretty sure (or at least I've never noticed it if doesn't) it only shows in send-to, new files, or if you're clicking on a zip etc.

    It may show up as normal with winzip/7zip etc installed, but pretty sure (ish) it's not by default

    Thanks for that, I realise that I was getting confused between 7zip (which I use) and the option being hidden because the New submenu is hidden.

    Phew!
