Windows 10: How can I modify the Path that is used in a cmd session (i.e. Command Prompt)?

Hi Experts,

How can I modify the Path that is used in a Windows 10 cmd session (i.e. Command Prompt)?

not sure I understand but if you want the prompt to be at a different directory type the following:

cd "c:\directory path"

Hi Tim,

Sorry if my question was vague.

I want to add another folder to the PATH environment variable.

Currently when I type the path command, the output is:

PATH=C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Oracle\Java\javapath;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Intel\Shared Libraries\redist\intel64\mpirt;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Intel\Shared Libraries\redist\intel64\compiler;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Intel\Shared Libraries\redist\ia32\mpirt;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Intel\Shared
Libraries\redist\ia32\compiler;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\WINDOWS\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\WINDOWS\System32\OpenSSH\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Windows Performance Toolkit\;C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Tools\Binn\;C:\Users\Leigh\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps;

I want to add C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE to this PATH

Thanks Tim & Lee.

Lees' suggestion "To Modify it for ALL command prompts going forward" worked for me,
