Right click project and select 'Package'.

This will create a zip which includes all the file in the project (look in the output box to see where it got saved).  Its a handy way of sending a project to others, archiving a project etc.

A benefit is it will remove other projects and files in the package that are not used.  It only packages the MPLAB X project that you are using.
