Q: How do you set the path in Windows 7?
A: From the user interface, do the following
Click Start -> Computer -> System Properties -> Advanced System Properties -> Environment Variables -> Select Path under System Variables.
The computer option can be found on the right side of the Start menu. The System Properties option is on the main menu of the Computer dialog.
It seems to work pretty much like it did in XP. It is just a little harder to find.
