Win10 change in method of adding file to 'path'?

  • #1
I am trying to add 'pip' in Python/Scripts to path in Win10 but the method available to do this seems to have changed recently. I used to just double click on 'path' in 'system variables' and paste path to pip (or whatever) at the end of a string of similar paths separated by a semicolon. But now that does not come up.

Just wonder if anyone else has noticed this change in latest updates of Windows 10? And maybe tell me how to add a path to 'path' in 'system varialbes' now.

In the search popup (lower left of screen), type in path. Select to edit either system environment variables (must be logged in as administrator) or environment variables for your account. A window should pop up where you can select Path and select Edit. You can add a line for your new folder.

QUESTION: Are you trying to add a directory or a file? I don't think you can add a file, but from your question it looks like you didn't get to that point anyway.
