# Environment variable not working

Hi
I have edited the environment variable to root\bin but the root command is not working in cmd even though typing “root” in the directory root\bin opens root. What is wrong?

Call it `ROOTSYS` instead of `ROOT`, and then add (append) `%ROOTSYS%\bin` in your `Path` environment variable
``````ROOTSYS=C:\Users\akasp\Downloads\root\
