Some software requires (or highly recommends) to put a path into the Path variable in the list of Environmental Variables.  I have seen a few YouTube presentations for setting Path variable.  Some videos showed creating a Path variable in which to put a file's path and other videos show how to add a path to the already existing path variable.  Which is better?  Does which way is done make a difference?  Is it acceptable to have two PATH variables?    How should we think about these?

by default there are some default path variable for windows

 

%SystemRoot%\system32;

%SystemRoot%;

%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;

C:\Program Files\Intel\DMIX;

%systemroot%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;

 

you would just add to these as you see fit. I take a less is more and only add stuff i really need to path variables nothing more, nothing less.
