Reviews for this release

Great tool, but PLEASE PLEASE do the following 2 upgrades: 1. Resizable! 2. Type in paths Other upgrades would be nice to have: 3. Use file open dialog (limited to directories) instead of folder browser. Folder browser is much harder to navigate, and sometimes you find you need to move stuff around, which normal file dialog allows you to do. 4. Allow editing of other environment variables, with the option of fully evaluating full variable names.

It works, and its free. What could be better than that? It's open source, so if you want it better, roll up your sleeves and dig in.

Does what is says on the tin: A nice little editor that makes it easier to edit your Windows PATH. Would have given it five stars except I can't maximize the window and the number of lines visible in the editor at any one time is only seven - would have liked to be able to see more. Useful feature is being able to move lines up and down within the set of paths. In my case this was useful for making SQL Server Management Studio 2012 the default instead of SSMS 2008. I would have preferred to be able to move multiple lines at once but being able to move lines at all is a bonus. EDIT (9 Mar 2015): Doesn't run on Windows Server 2003. Fails with a message that it's not a valid Win32 application.

It provides a much easier way to view current entires in the path environment variable compared to the system's default editor as entries are displayed line by line. Like other reviews, it would be better if the window was resizable and it lacks the ability to type (or just paste) paths into it, instead requiring the user to navigate a tree to find and select a directory.

Slightly better than the default Windows tool, but limited to viewing 6-7 lines and can't resize the window.

Nice job. But WHY is the editor window not resizable? This is one of my pet gripes - I reckon it should be made illegal to create applications with non-resizable windows unless there is some overwhelming reason why it cant be resized.

Simple to use, but I wish I could type a path.

Current download does not run. States it is an invalid Win32 application. Trying to run it on WinXP.

An efficient replacement for the Windows' environment variables dialogue box. It showed my wrong entries using that small narrow textbox :)
