I thisk you are looking for environment variables.
Right click on my computer --> properties --> Advanced System Settings --> Advanced Tab --> Environment variables
here you can check, add, or edit environment variables.

I would prefer if I don't have to use third party tool. It doesn't make sense that windows lacks this feature.

In Windows' command prompt you've got the mklink command. Here's the reference for it: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753194(WS.10).aspx

mklink doesn't provide option to list existing links.

From the looks of it - no, Windows cannot list symlinks. You would have to use the aforementioned Nirsoft software.
