    7zip Integration


    7zip isn't integrating into the Shell of Windows8, even though the option of "Shell Integration" is ticked within 7zip itself. Is anyone else having this problem? If so is there a fix.

    7zip "Shell Integration" works on my Win8. Start 7zip File Manager as Admin and then turn on "Shell Integration".

    Unless there is another option, you are only talking about going to "options" and then "7zip" tab and then "integrate 7zip to the shell context menu", correct? If so that's always checked for me.

    Yes, I talking about Options-integrate 7zip to the shell context menu. I don't remember correctly, but I think that I has the same problem on win7. What I have done was to run 7zip File Manager as Admin, uncheck "integrate 7zip to the shell context menu", close 7zip, log off, log on, run 7zip File Manager as Admin, check "integrate 7zip to the shell context menu", log off, log on. This was 1 year ago, so I'm not sure about the log off-log on steps. But you can try.
