How can I edit my config.sys and autoexec.bat in windows xp when I cannot gain access to righr clicking on start?

I know Windows XP doesn't use CONFIG.SYS or AUTOEXEC.BAT. They are there simply to provide backward compatibility with legacy applications, and that you can get to it through I cannot get to where I need to do this

To set environmental variables, Right-Click My Computer >
Properties > Advanced > Environment Variables > System Variables/New
(or Edit, as applicable). You can also add the appropriate line(s) to
C:\Windows\System32\Autoexec.nt and/or C:\Windows\System32\Config.nt.
To run programs on login, create a shortcut to the desired application
and place it in the pertinent Startup folder(s).

is there a way to bypass it or a command that will lead to the same place?

  1. I don't see where you put in what you are actually trying to do. Are you trying to add something to the environment variable or something to start automatically when Windows starts? Neither have anything to do with right-clicking on start (I'm assuming you are talking about the Start Menu button). Edit/add to the post some details about what you are trying to do.
