Modify system environment variables.

This tweak lets you modify the Windows system environmental variable - path.

Tweak for : Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista
Windows system environment variables contain path, temp, Windir and other defined values. These are created by Windows setup and some programs. The user can also make some additions or modifications. The variables can also be deleted by the user.

The user must close and re-open any software, if it was running at that time so that it can act upon these changed values.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. Now, right-click and modify the Expandable String value “Path”, in the right panel, by modifying system environment variables.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.

NOTE:
The user must copy the exact path in the notepad before making any changes in the registry and paste it back after the job is completed.

Apply registry settings according below given steps of screenshots with related changes.

The Windows system environmental variables can be modified.

The existing paths of environament variables are visible by default.
