Do you mean right click > Send To > Compressed File?

As for 7Zip specifically, if you install WinRar you can choose with it to compress to most formats.

It's donation-ware, and will warn you to pay but you don't have to as it won't force you out.

So you totally could pay for it if you want to.

But I'm with Pat. I've always used the right click -> send to zip method.

Gunny select all the files you want to archive with 7zip and then right click - 7zip - add to archive. Then you will have the options regarding which format you want and how compressed you want to make it
