# Windows 8- How to set the path for Java

In Windows 8 How to set the path for Java
Copy the path where the bin folder is installed it should be in C:\Program files or C:\Program Files (x86)
My Path looks like
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre\bin
Then you go to computer click on Manage then System Properties then Advanced System Settings
then click on Environment Variables in System Variables look for
path
click on edit
then append or add this to the end of whatever else that is already there

……….;C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre\bin;

Please Note: Do not delete whatever is already set in the path and remember to add a semi colon before hand ;
watch this space as I will add screen shots soon.
Thanks
