Simply forgot – What’s in my path?

,

I was recently doing some work that required me to look at the PATH system variable in Windows.

Nothing too hard about that, just open a command prompt and type path

and we get all the directories available in the PATH listed.

That’s sometimes a little hard to read, so say we wanted each directory on a separate line – simple, Powershell can do that for us.

In fact – I prefer using the Powershell ISE to the simple Commandline windows

If you’re looking for the Powershell ISE, just do a search directly from the start menu in windows

Then it’s just a simple matter of adding a few lines of code

and we’ll see the output listed (truncated here)

Hope this helps somebody out.

Cheers

Marty
