    Compressed Folder GPOs

    Hi all,
    I am having some difficulty with finding out how to get the Compressed Folder (ZIP) option back onto the "Send To" menu.
    As far as I am aware there isn't a GPO setting for Compressed Folder and the only sources I can find online relate to the "Send To" menu however apart from adding it manually per a user I cannot see how to fix this.
    Is there anything that can be modified maybe via a registry GPO roll-out to restore Compressed Folder to the Send To menu?
    Thanks
    Fergus

    All my users lost the option to that and as a solution I deployed 7-Zip. This works brilliantly once explained to everyone.

    Have you tried running either of the commands below (from an elevated Command Prompt)?

    Code:
    reg delete HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.ZFSENDTOTARGET\UserChoice /f
    Code:
    rundll32 zipfldr.dll,RegisterSendto
    Like Chuckster, I normally use 7-zip because it's much faster at creating and extracting files from .zip files compared to Compressed Folders.

    Isn't there a send to folder in %appdata% that controls what is in that menu? Control that through GPP.
