"Compressed (zipped) Folder" option is missing from Send To.

    Question

  • The "Compressed (zipped) Folder" option from the <Send To> options is missing on my machine. I have run the command rundll32 zipfldr.dll, RegisterSendTo. When I run the rundll32 zipfldr.dll, RegisterSendTo I get the message "Error in zipfldr.dll, Missing entry:registersendto". I've also copied the shortcut from the Windows <Send To> to the Users <Send To> which hasn't worked either. Are there any alternative solutions?

  • Hi Velorium,

     

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet forums.

     

    Did you find the folder named “Compressed (zipped) folder” in  location %systemdrive%\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo ?

    Copy and paste it to the location %systemdrive%\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

     

    Please make sure you don’t set the folder Properties- Attributes to “Hidden”.

     

    In addition, since you cannot successfully load the zipfldr.dll, I suggest you do a System File Checker, follow these steps:

     

    1. Insert the Windows 7 installation DVD into the DVD-ROM; Click Exit if the auto-menu pops up.

     

    2. Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow. 

     

    3.  At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

     

    sfc /scannow

     

     

    If it doesn’t work, when did this issue happen?

     

    A system restore could help you restore to the time that the option was showed.

  • I have seen this problem described in several forums.  this seems to be an older thread, so here is my scenario.

    The solution to copy a from default\appData\roaming\microsoft\windows\sendto\... to <user>\appData\... (ZFSendToTarget) does not work.  The file is not hidden.  I did a quick peek creating a copy, then a file rename as .txt, I opened that file with notepad and saw the word, ZIP.  

    I did install the WinZip program, but decided to remove it a few weeks ago.  I thought I had accessed that feature since that time.
