On Windows you can use following command line. Just append your jar. All java runtimes will refer to this line on top of their own.
set CLASSPATH=myfolder/jar1.jar;myfolder/jar2.jar;myfolder/jar3.jar

Or,

When you run the java code.
java -classpath myfolder/jar1.jar myapp.main

If you did it on the OS level, the compiling would have used them if they are included in the OS CLASSPATH.

I would recommend that you use IDEs such as eclipse.
