    I'm posting this just out of curiosity... Please take a look at my system and user PATH variables (Windows 10 1809 x64):

    I just wonder to know why and how some variables seem to be a duplicate, like for example %SystemRoot%\System32 and C:\Windows\System32...

    And what about those intel entries that are there for sure since I installed the drivers long time ago? You can't see the whole path in the screenshot, but they point to dlls, not even executables...

    :)

    System environment variable won't stick


    Running Win10 Home on an Acer Spin 3, 64bit, i7cpu. I try to add a path to the system environment variables by:

    1. Control Panel > System > Advanced system settings > Advanced tab > Environment variables

    2. The "Environment Variables" window opens.
    3. In the "System Variables" pane I select "Path" and click the EDIT button.
    4. A list of the current system paths is displayed.
    5. I click the NEW button, browse to the path I want to add which is "C:\Python36-32" and click OK. The path "C:\Python36-32" is added to the list of current system paths.
    6. I click OK and am returned to the "Environment Variables" window.
    7. I click the "X" at the top right to close the "Environment Variables" window.

    Now if I click the "Environment Variables" button again (end of step-1) and repeat steps 2-4, the new path I added in step-5 is gone. IOW, adding a new path won't stick.

    What am I doing wrong?

    no longer able to set User's environment variables in control panel

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    From the description provided, I understand that you are not able to work on the Environment Variables in Windows 10 after the latest update to build 10586.3.

    The path to access the Environment variables in Windows would be:

    Control panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings -> Advanced -> Environment variables.

    However, if the above is still in place, but however, you still face functionality issue, I would suggest you to rollback to the previous build and check if it helps.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Click on Start and select Settings and then choose Update & security.
    • Then click on ‘Recovery Options’.
    • Click on the ‘Get started’ button in the ‘Go back to a previous build of Windows’ option to start the recovery process.
    Hope the above information is helpful. If you need further information, feel free to write t us and we would be happy to help you.

    Thank you.

    User environment variables recovery

    All my user environment variables are lost(reset) after I rename my PC, but the system environment variables remain unchanged. Some of the commands in command prompt can not run properly. How can I restore those user variables? I don't mind if I change the
    name of PC back as before, as long as I can run my commands. Thank you!!!

    This is what my user variables look like now:
