path

## Synopsis

When you type an executable filename at the command prompt (as opposed to an internal DOS command), Windows starts by looking in the current directory for a file that matches. If no matching file is found, Windows then looks in a series of other folders—these folders are known collectively as the path, or the command search path. The `path` statement is used to define these additional directories, and is used as follows:

`path [`path1`][;`path`2][;`path`3][;...]`

## Examples

```C:\>`path c:\stuff;d:\tools`
C:\>`path %path%;c:\stuff;d:\tools`
```
