Enable / Disable Group Policy - Sent To "Compressed (zipped) folder"

I THINK The option to "Send To" compressed folder is disabled via GPO by the previous IT guy.
I would like to enable this feature but I cannot find where it is disabled.
"Compressed (zipped) folder" exists here on all user roaming profiles; C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo. But when all users logon to the Terminal Server the "Sent To" is customised.
How can I enable "Sent To" "Compressed (zipped) folder" via Group Policy?
Thank you

Run gpresult /r on the terminal server and see what are policy applied. Then checked the those policy setting if the it's applied  you will find option to "Send To" compressed folder is disabled via GPO.

Run the following command on the terminal server and check

Type following command in RUN dialog box:

I think  to  enable/disable "send to" feature might be not available in GPO. It's feature of OS.

There is no predefined policy setting in GPO for that. You can do that modifying Windows registry. For that you can use:

1) Importing predefined reg file in logon script
2) Change settings manually in registry
3) Define Administrative Template (ADM) file for 2003 environment
4) Use Group Policy Preferences (GPP) in 2008 environment (possible to usefor XP/2003 too, but first Client Side Extension must be installed)

So, I would check also gpresult first to get full overview what has been done but with /z switch to get detailed information. Please log on to that Terminal Server on a user and run in command-line

gpresult /z >c:\gpresult.log

Open in new window

Please attach this file here for analyze.

One more thing you can do is run RSOP.msc on client machine and check where this is configuered and the source policy
