Very simple way to add the drag and drop of a
compressed file.
With this you right-click a .7z file, drag it to
another folder and have the extract pop-up menu.

Launch regedit.exe and go to:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shellex\DragDropHandlers\

create a new key and name it 7-ZIP. Go in the new key.
Double-click on the (Default) item and add the same
value you have in
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\7-ZIP\

It should be something like:
{23170F69-40C1-278A-1000-000100020000}

That's it. No need to reboot or recompile the program.

    The patch suggested here DOES NOT work (at least with 7-zip
    4.18 beta).

    Even though it correctly allows to have the 7-zip actions
    available in the D&D context menu, their target directory is
    not correctly set to the D&D target.
    For example, "Extract here" extracts to the source of the
    D&D gesture, NOT to the target.

    I guess I should have tested it a bit more...
