Right click on My Computer, select Properties, Advanced then Environment
Variables. There are two areas: User variables and System variables.
Both can have a PATH environment variable. They are combined. The
difference is that System variables are known to services which start
before you log in (of course if you change these you need to reboot to
rebuild the services environment which is built at boot time). I add
C:\Cygwin\bin to my System variables personally.
