  4. Click Edit the system environment variables. System Properties dialog appears with the Advanced tab selected.

  5. In the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables. The Environment Variables dialog appears.

  6. In the Environment Variables dialog, under the Variable column of the System variables section, select Path and then click Edit.

  7. In the dialog that appears, add a semicolon and then paste the path to the folder where you unzipped the cURL utility files followed by 'bin', for example,C:\Users\Administrator\Downloads\curl-7.64.0_2-win64-mingw\curl-7.64.0-win64-mingw\bin, and click OK.
