List of Path Abbreviations: %whatever% Thingies

Does anyone know where I can find a list of valid path abbreviations? I'm referring to the abbreviations between percent signs such as %programdata% = C:\ProgramData that one can use in defining paths. I'm familiar with a few, but would like to know more about them. Thanks for your help.
