In Windows you can zip some files by
right click → Send to → Compressed (zipped) folder
And unzip by double clicking on the
.zip file and extract the files.
Is there a way to apply those abilities from a script (.bat file) without the need to install any third-party software?
Back in 2013, that was not possible. Microsoft didn’t provide any executable for this.
See this link for some VBS way to do this.
From Windows 8 on, .NET Framework 4.5 is installed by default, with System.IO.Compression.ZipArchive and PowerShell available, one can write scripts to achieve this, see
