Environment variables are strings that contain information about the environment for the system, and the currently logged on user. Some software programs use the information to determine where to place files (such as temp, tmp, path etc). Environment variables control the behavior of various programs. Any user can add, modify, or remove a user environment variable. However, only an administrator can add, modify, or remove a system environment variable. Using Desktop Central, the environment variables can be defined and added.
