According to this website: Javanotes 6.0, Section 2.6 -- Programming Environments, it says
So I went to section 4 here: Installation NotesQuote:
The most basic commands for using Java on the command line are javac and java; javac is used to compile Java source code, and java is used to run Java stand-alone applications. If a JDK is correctly installed on your computer, it should recognize these commands when you type them in on the command line. Try typing the commands java -version and javac -version which should tell you which version of Java is installed. If you get a message such as "Command not found," then Java is not correctly installed. If the "java" command works, but "javac" does not, it means that a Java Runtime is installed rather than a Development Kit.
My bin directory is C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_26\bin
However, I get confused when I get to the PATH for User Variables and System Variables.
My computer says that the PATH User Variable is currently %CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live
and the PATH System Variable is currently %CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.7\miktex\bin;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%; %SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTSystem\;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\Wi ndowsPowerShell\v1.0\
Could someone please help me with where I'm supposed to type the bin directory address?
Thanks in advance! Sorry I'm new to Java so I'm really confused.
