Configure The 7-Zip Windows Explorer Context Menu

9 Mar/10

The popular compression software 7-Zip integrates itself nicely into Windows Explorer to make compression related tasks comfortable. Depending on the file selecting options are displayed to compress or uncompress the selection.

Usually a lot of options are displayed when right-clicking files or folders in Windows Explorer which makes it more complex than necessary to selected the needed options. A right-click on an archive for instance displays options to open the archive, extract the files, extract the contents in the current folder, extract the contents to a folder with the same name as the archive and to test the archive.

The same is true for creating new archives as options are displayed to add the files and folders to the archive, compress and email the selection, create a 7z or zip archive and compress and email the selection as a 7z or zip archive.

The entries that are displayed in Windows Explorer can be configured right in 7-Zip. A click on Tools > Options will open the 7-Zip configuration menu. Switching to Plugins and clicking on the options button will open the Windows Explorer integration options.

It is possible to remove the options that are not needed so that they do not appear in Windows Explorer in the menu.

The changes will be visible immediately in Windows Explorer. There are of course other ways of handling Windows Explorer context menu entries like the Windows Explorer Menu Editor or File Menu Tools.
