# Adding a path to PATH variable faster

What is fastest method to add or remove a folder path to PATH variable in windows 7 or is there any utility that make it a bit faster(e.g. right clicking on the folder and selecting "Add/Remove to/from PATH variable")?

set retains change only for current batch process and it's children.

setx, on the contrary, makes persistent changes to user or system wide environment.

But it has some issues. See adding PATH with SETX or PATHMAN or something else?. It suggests pathed as the most convenient way.
