Create Finder-equivalent zip archives
Authored by: ihelp-mac on Aug 11, '04 07:14:16PM

I'm CERTAIN this capability was part of the OSX 10.3.0 Finder... Highlighting a file or folder and then hitting Command-Option-3 would create a ZIP archive, on the desktop...

However, I cannot replicate this capability in OSX 10.3.5----has Apple taken this function away? I note that the Finder FILE menu still has this command and it still well as having it in the control/right-click contextual menu...

However, there is *NO* Keyboard-shortcut linked to this capability, nor can I figure out a way to get the SystemPreferences:Keyboard&Mouse:KeyboardShortcuts menu to accommodate for this missing keystroke combination

I'd like to have it back! HELP! :-) thanks-in-advance!....
