Is there any software that will encode a wav filet to an mp3 by right clicking on the file in Windows Explorer? Preferably using the LAME encoder.

You just create a batch file for the encoder, it's really no big deal.

What I don't like about the solution is that your batch file will always appear in the send to menu regardless of the type of object(s) selected. Unlike j7n's solution, however, it spawns only one instance for multiple items. This is why it would be nice if someone could create a hook (because I prefer j7n's solution as it is context-dependent), otherwise dBpowerAMP is probably your best bet.

Edited for clarity.

You're saying that it would not spawn an encoder instance for every file "sent to"? (I can't check as the batch file would not appear under Send To for me.)
