I installed NCH's Express Zip, and now I can no longer use Windows 7's way of extracting and compressing. I would like to get rid of the NCH program and get back the original functionality of windows 7, including being able to right click and compress a folder into a zip file or extract a zip file into a folder. Does anyone know how to do this? Is there a specific program name that Windows 7 uses to do this? If it's not still there, can I download it from somewhere?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

The basic functionality is part of Windows 7, has been there since Windows XP - in other words that should be the default handler.

Have you uninstalled NCH Express Zip via Control Panel / Programs And Features, or it's own uninstall menu option?

If you have done that and the default zip handlers still don't work, then you could try a decent piece of software like WinZip or WinRAR, or the suggestions here:

The command line didn't work because my command window did not recognize the command "cmd". But the right click, open with, did work, thank you so much! – megaritzmom Feb 21 '13 at 23:38
