# Environment variables

With environment variables you can define paths which are not statical. Environment variables can be used when creating a password, in the field URL/File.

EXAMPLE: The path
C:\Users\<user name>\Documents\afile.txt
can be entered as:
%USERPROFILE%\Documents\afile.txt.

Advantage: If you use different user accounts on the same PC, the paths will be updated correctly without defining a statical path for every account. For example, the program directory might be C:\Program Files (x86)\ in one case and E:\Program files\ in the other.
