I need a free file compression tool. It seems winzip wants me to pay for software I will not probably use again for a while .

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

I've seen this on Ninite, is the shell integration any good?

Here are your options for the context menu. There are effectively repeated for the "Send To" menu.

Typically I just use "Add to Archive" though as the window that gives you allows you to do whatever you want: select the compression format, amount, number of volumes, etc. From PeaZip's site:
