But it does not zip things up--it only unzips things.

I like 7-zip, but I prefer the explorer view to the single window native with 7zip and use tugzip instead. Tugzip also supports 7zip format (the most compressed format I've seen), and also has, in my opinion, a cleaner interface and better context menus....
