Yeah windows can zip but 7z is a lot easier to handle.
You shouldn't need ninite for 7zip,
Click 7zip and then the latest version.
Install the appropriate version x64 should be what you go for.
The last version is 22.01.
You will have to run the thing as admin in order to set
The only issue are the label of the buttons for registration of
files but on eavery file go to the second button and hit it and
that will do it for all users.
I don't use it for much but it helps me with rar and other
It can also access hidden files which can be usefull.
Its also dangerous if you have others access to it because it
can access hidden files and protected files but on the other
hand if you need to kill old data like windows installs and temp
files and know what you are at then its fine.
Its easier than buggering about with folder options and such
especially if things half bust like they have been with me at a
7zip is easier than doodling with that ,, run in admin and you
can do simple opps.
I also like the 7z format.

It’s not necessary to
have it, but having an archiver programme is still useful
and gives you features that are not native to windows.
Try going to the 7zip
site instead of using ninnite. Get it from the source and
install it manually. Choose 64 or 32 bit version depending
on your preference and needs.
With windows 11, it's not necessary to havve 7zip. Just
highlight the files you want in your archive and open the
context menu and choose add to archive.

Last night I tried to install the 7-zip
program from the ninite site but kept getting a message
that the installation failed. I wanted to zip up an album
to share with a music list I’m on. Does it no longer work
in windows 11? Just wondering.
Thanks for your help.
