  1. Open an Explorer window
  2. Right click on This PC and select Properties from the pop-up menu
  3. In the Control Panel window click on Advanced system settings
  4. Click on Environment Variables

At this point you have to decide if you want the change to apply to just the current user, or for all users. You will click on Path in either the upper list (current user) of the lower list (all users).

  1. Click on the appropriate Edit... button.
  2. In the Edit environment variable window click New
  3. Enter the desired path info into the edit box
  4. Click OK
  5. Click OK
  6. Click OK
