    Send To > compressed zip folder...?

    Is there any way of allowing access to this function without allowing users to right click inside an explorer window?

    Don't really want to deploy a third party app to do something windows can already do, and at the moment kids have completely no access to it, the only way i can see of giving them access to it is to enable right click context menus but this opens up a whole can of worms of things i have to lock down. Seeing as they have very few issues without access to it bar this i'd like another way of enabling it? Alternatively if any other zipping programs can be installed in a single location and used remotely that'd be suitable, haven't tried any myself yet though.

    Cheers

    Never mind, I've answered my own question by enabling the explorer menu bar, everything they shouldnt be able to do is locked out that way....some more delving to be done but looks like that might solve my problem.

    I know you don't want to deploy anything else but I always found deploying 7-Zip was handy. It may be me being selfish but I prefer the context-menu options it gives and you can squeeze a little more compression out of it

    It comes as a handy MSI too.
