Hello Terry,

I was confused over your last bit. Are you saying that alt + enter doesn’t bring up a properties dialog?

What you are talking about is the path variable. Perhaps a search on how to add paths in windows 10 might help.

I don’t know how you use bing, I get totally lost with it.

Geood luck.
