I can't figure out how to make one. I open the folder that I would like to compressed but when I do the whole FILE>highlight content>Right-click>select Send To> Compressed zip folder...I don't have that last option. I have win zip, which I'm assuming just unzips folders but not make them. Am I looking in the wrong place?

If you set WinZip to intergrate into the shell, you should be able to right click and choose WinZip > Add to ****.zip.

I'll install winzip and try to help.....

Open winzip, and drag your files into the winzip window. It should prompt for an archive name, etc. etc.

make sense?
