Below is a quick and easy guide that will allow you to quickly and easily compress any number of files in finder on your Mac.

You can of course just use the right click method and select 'Compress x Items' but who doesn't love a keyboard shortcut? I use keyboard shortcuts wherever possible and I am sure there are many others that do too.
