The name of some specific folders in Windows

Hi all,

What folders do these addresses refer to? My user profile is named ME.

@HomeDir@ = C\Users\ME (I know this one)
@UserProfile@ = ?
USERPROFILE = ?
@TargetDir@ = ?
@StattMenuDir@ = ?
@RootDir@ = ?

Don't you mean..

%HomeDir% = C\Users\ME (I know this one)
%UserProfile% = ?
USERPROFILE = ?
%TargetDir% = ?
%StattMenuDir% = ?
%RootDir% = ?

Open PowerShell C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Windows PowerShell Type dir env: It'll give you a list of Environment Variables.
