Rapid Environment Editor Review

Tina de Pierre
A free and simple Windows environment variable editor with easy GUI
A review of Rapid Environment Editor by Tina de Pierre

Rapid Environment Editor is software which provides access to advanced options, editing and viewing environment variables.

With Rapid Environment Editor, you are presented with a clean and well thought-out layout which makes using the program a piece of cake. Though it isn't meant for novice users due to its technical nature.

The main layout features two panels with display user and system variable. You can view detailed information about environment elements such as the name, type and value.

Rapid Environment Editor allows you to add variables which can be copied and pasted from the Windows Clipboard. You can also use the program to backup registry entries in the REG file format. Subsequently, you can import them back into the registry later.

This software runs very well when we tested it and didn't make much of a footprint on system resource usage meaning it uses little in terms of CPU and memory.

Overall, this program can be useful for advanced and intermediate users to edit system and user variables on a system running virtually any version of Windows.
