    Environment variables are a set of dynamic values that can affect the way running processes will behave on a computer. You can find out a lot with a wikipedia search or a plain ol Gurgle search.

    Here's one:

    Click on Start->Run-> %temp%

    Your temp folder will open using this Environment Variable (%temp%)
    You can delete everything in the Temp folder (that opens) too.

    Here's some more Recognized Environment Variables
