Setting system variable path

You may want to directly access the apps in Command Prompt without entering whole path,

Example :¬†Assume you have installed python 3 in “C:\python3\” , to access it in command prompt window you will need to enter whole path “C:\python3\python.exe“. But, if you have set path in windows, you will need to enter only “python“. That’s all, nothing more nothing less.
