    Since you're asking the question I presume you are using Windows. Go to Control Panel, click on Performance and Maintenance then click System. In the popup window that appears, click on the Advanced tab and, finally, click on the "environment variables" button.

    You can append (or edit) the correct path for your particular application to the list of paths appearing in the system variables in the lower pane.

    And we were told GUI would SIMPLIFY computers! LoL!

    Here's another way:

    Right-click "My Computer" -> Properties -> Advanced -> Environment Variables -> System Variables -> Path will show you the current PATH variable, which you can change there.
