Restore Windows 10 Missing Compressed (Zipped) Folder from send to Menu

The built-in tool offers a simple way to create compressed (zipped) folder for organizing your files with less drive space and transferring to other computers more quickly. I was able to right-click on a file, select Send to then Compressed (zipped) folder option from the menu in Windows 8.1. However, after my Surface Pro 3 upgraded to Windows 10 64-bit with the latest update applied, the option was missing and that appeared only “Bluetooth device” entry.

How to restore the missing Compressed (zipped) folder option to the Send to menu in Windows 10
One of the files might become corrupt and broken, and that causes the option disappearing. You could try any of the method to get rid of that.
* Open the File Explorer, select View tab on the ribbon at top, and check “Hidden Items” box. All hidden files and folders will be showed.
* Click the This PC, navigate to the OS C: > Users, select your username, and then go to the location:AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo
You can also press Win + R, type the command:
%systemdrive%\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo
and press Enter key to open Compressed (zipped) folder shortcut.
* You should see that there is a file named Bluetooth with 0KB. Simply delete this file and the problem has been resolved.

If the method is still not working, try another solution.
* There is a Compressed (Zipped) folder in the above location, copy this folder. You can also get the same file from other tablet or computer.
* Press Win + R from your keyboard, type Shell:sendto, and click Ok button to open the Send to folder in File Explorer. Then paste the coped Compressed (Zipped) folder previously here. That is it.
