How do I check path variables included on path to java?

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I want to download the java version 1.6.0._27 (latest version) to my Windows 7 OS. Before downloading the java version it is necessary that I make sure the path variables are included in the path to java. Does anyone have an idea on how I could go about checking on the variables that are included on the paths to java? Please let me know.

How do I check path variables included on path to java?



Hi Morgan ,



First of all i can tell you that you wouldn't be wrong if you install the latest version of java without checking or manually editing the PATH variable… But it is definitely more conveniently to run JAVA SDK executables from any directory without typing the full path of the command. 

If you decide to check your system variables and set the path follow these steps:





After selecting the 'Advanced' tab click on Environment Variables button :


Environment Variables



It should look something like the following image :


Environment Variables - Path



You will notice the variable PATH in System Variables field. Edit that field with path to the installation folder of your latest java version. Usually that is C:Program FilesJavajre6<version>bin 



Hope this was helpful 



Best regards
