I installed Java RE and Git, for example, and made sure their binaries were added to Environment Path Variables under both User and System variables. When I launch a command prompt from the taskbar, these variables work properly (i.e. commands "java" and "git" are recognized.
I also added "open command window here" to background context by editing the registry. But when I open a command prompt using this method, my environment path variables aren't recognized.
How can I make the command prompt recognize my environment variables when opened this way?
pathin either of the two CMD prompts to see if the Registry hack is leading to the wrong users, inheriting a different PATH (although the System PATH should be the same for both).
PATH? Shouldn't it be one or the other if it's the same location that's being added?
