    Hi can somebody in not too complex terms explain to me the term "variable" in
    relation to the SET command.

    Thanks for your time.

    SET is a command line tool for setting the user and system environment
    variables. Most of those same variables can be accessed through the GUI
    via the System Propeteries > Advanced tab > Environment Variables
    button.

    A variable is a container that contains a bit of information. For
    example, the TMP and TEMP variables contain a path pointed to where
    your temp directory is located. If you SET those to C:\Temp and create
    a directory named Temp on the root of your C: drive, Windows will store
    your temp files there instead of in your user profile folder.

    Hope that helps...
