I have changed the path of my TEMP-Folder to D:\TEMP by setting the environment-variables TEMP and TMP accordingly (using the UI under System->Advanced Options -> Environment Variables). However, if I type %TEMP% into the Windows search field, I still get to the old path. Did it change correctly or have I done something wrong?

    How, exactly, did you set the environment variables? Please edit your question and include this essential information. – DavidPostill Aug 30 '16 at 12:18
  • Did you change both the "System" and "User" TEMP variables? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Aug 30 '16 at 13:10

    Yes I did change both. – thesys Aug 30 '16 at 13:18

I had the same problem but I figured that it had changed correctly. Because when I deleted the file remnants left in the old path, I noticed all the files got deleted without getting the "file in use" warning and the folder remained empty meaning no temporary files were being created there any more.
