Windows 7: Cannot find the system variable path.

14 Nov 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate
Cannot find the system variable path.


Running windows 7 ultimate 32bit.

I want to add to path per this below, but I cannot find the path per the info here:

5) add “C:\gtk\bin;C:\gtksourceview\bin;C:\libxml2\bin” to the bottom of the system variable named “Path” (right click on “my computer” icon on the desktop, choose “properties”, then from the tab “advanced” click on the button “environment variables”; between the “system variables” you will see “Path” that you have to edit)
How do I that ?
