Rapid Environment Editor is a great tool for being able to get to the Windows environment and add, change, delete or update environment variables, both the system and user settings. The place that I have found it of most use is when I run a lot of developer apps on a Windows computer, e.g. SQL Server & IIS. If you don't have a lot of compact directory paths, and use the default path names, you can run out of room for the path, and the applications don't work or function well. REE allows you to check the path for errors and fix them. If you put a wrong path in, it lets you know. It has context items to shorten (all 8.3 short-names) or return a shortened path to full extensions. Also variable expansion and cleanup of paths are also supported. I've also found REE useful in fixing QuickTime paths and variables issues. Variables are flagged as read-only or updateable and the program allows either strings or expandable strings as data types.

This app is one of the first I put on any windows box.

While the standard Windows Environment variable editor is a great example of a very bad UX (OK, finally, in the year 2017 Windows 10 has improved it a bit), Rapid Environment Editor has very good UX and even though it can manage any environment variable, both system and user, it excels in editing of path-type variables, which it displays separated, one path per line, allows adding of a new path value using standard Browse for Folder/Open file dialogs, checks and highlights invalid paths and more.

I'm always amazed with how the default Windows Environmental Variables Editor looks like. By that I mean that it looks like bad application from early '90s. And here Rapid Environment Editor is an awesome alternative. It is one of the tools I always choose to install first right after getting fresh Windows installation. It is super user-friendly and very useful - especially for programmers like me but also all other people that like to have things automated on thieir PC (i.e. using different kind of scripts, SDKs, etc.). After I've shown it to my colleagues everybody liked it very much as well.

Thanks to the author for making his effort to create that one! Great job!
