7Zip not showing up on right click context menu windows 10 pro

Not open for further replies.
I was able to fix this problem after reading Farstrike post and by uninstalling 7zip 32bit and installing 7zip 64bit. Now all working as normal.
I had the same issue after upgrading to windows 11.
Try selecting "Show more options" in the right click menu. It works for me
signed up just for this, one thing to check is whether 7-zip.dll exists in the install folder, not to be confused with 7z.dll.

if it's not there then that's your problem! the fix is very easy, open the 7z installer exe any which way, like 7zFM.exe and extract 7-zip.dll to the install folder, that's it!
I had this same issue where the 7-zip disappread after my user was reset on my work computer. I tried one fix from above (Integrate 7-Zip to shell context menu option is selected - it already was), but it didn't help. What did help was just reinstalling the 64-bit version.

    • Right-click on the 7-Zip key (if it exists) and select Delete to remove it.
    • Close the Registry Editor.
