      What do you want to know?

      Every machine has differant stuff in the path because of the software installed.

        When win 7 was installed there was a default path.

        I can change the path:

        path=%path%;c:\bin

        But the default path returns when we exit and then return to the command prompt.

        There is another method but I cannot get it to work?

        The thread title says it all.

        The default Windows 7 PATH is

        Code: [Select]
        %SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShel l\v1.0\
        For most people this will be

        Code: [Select]
        C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\
