Environment variables is an important tool for simplifying the command line in Windows. However, IT has never been very convenient, requiring users to open multiple Settings and then set them in a retro window.

On PowerToys' GitHub page, Microsoft has admitted that the environment variables page is "very unreadable" and that beginners have a hard time understanding things like paths or designated folders.

So Microsoft is adding a tool called Environment Manager to PowerToys to make it easier to manage environment variables.

As you can see from the figure, the tool allows users to insert environment variables as if they were managing lists and helps them define paths to run executables. Users can directly click the "Add variable" button under "User variable" and "system variable", looks very convenient.

IT Home learned that the tool's environment variable editing rules are the same as the original, and that if multiple values need to be added, they are separated by semicolons.

Microsoft's free system utilities suite, called PowerToys, was resurrected from the Windows XP era and introduced to Windows 10 in May 2019. Can be used for advanced users to adjust and simplify Windows operations to improve efficiency. It works with the Windows 10/Windows 11 shell and allows users to customize individual workflows.

The tool is still under development, and we can expect to see it in future releases of PowerToys.
