So I am trying to figure out how to password protect a zip file using the built in zipping utility in windows 7. In windows xp and vista once you have created a zipped file you open the file and select file>add password.
In windows 7 (currently using pro) there is no "add password" option, anyone have any idea why this is? Or is there some other way of adding a password to a windows zip file that I am not aware of? Am I being forced to add a 3rd party zip app in order to password protect files?
if so my other question is why would such a simple/convenient feature be removed from an operating system that is suppose to be superior then the previous?
