The most significant change in Environment variables editor 1.5 is standalone editors for both System PATH and User PATH variables. There you can easily add a new directory to the PATH, change the order of PATH fragments, format it, even reset the value of the variable to its default one. The application automatically highlights any wrong PATH fragments, so you can remove them.
Following the idea from our UserVoice site that suggests to provide editor for User PATH as well, we added the feature in Windows Environment Variables Editor 1.5 Beta 6:
So starting from this version, there will be 2 PATH variable editors: for System and for User ones. Their functionality will be equal except that User PATH editor doesn’t have “Default value” button and there is no such value and initially User PATH variable is empty.
Both editors are available from Control Panel as well:
This is beta version, don’t forget to backup your PATH variable before playing with the editor.
Eveditor 1.3.0 is mostly dedicated to the following:
- Support for expandable variables
- Serious refactoring and re-organization of internal application structure, big step towards better testability and extensibility.
Whilst the second one is not visible to end-user and is under-the-hood work, the first feature provides the ability to include other environment variables inside your own ones. For example, if you declare
MyFolder = %SystemDrive%\MyFolder
MyFolder variable will be automatically expanded to:
C:\MyFolder path (presuming that OS is installed on
The same way any environment variable can be used inside another. Eveditor will automatically expand any variable and display the resulting value.
Note, Eveditor 1.3.0 is still development release, use with caution.
Thanks everyone for the feedback! It was very helpful!
