Adding Julia to PATH on Windows

Hello, I’m a beginner in programming with the Julia language and I have a question. Is adding Julia to PATH on Windows 10 really necessary?
If I don’t, won’t my Julia code run on VSCode or Jupyter?
P.S. Sorry for my English.

Add the julia path in VS code (or Atom) settings.
Then with alt+enter julia works inside VS code and you get inline execution.

No need to add Julia to PATH in order to access it in VS code or Jupyter.

If you installed Julia into a standard location on Mac or Windows, or if the Julia binary is on your PATH , the Julia VS Code extension automatically finds your Julia installation.

But if you want to use Julia in the command line on Windows 10 (e.g., for convenient tests and documentation), you may refer to the following link


Thanks for the answer! This helped a lot to clarify my doubt.

@eliascarv I usr Julia on Windows. I always give this advice - please use the Chocolatey package manager to install and update Julia. It really does solve a lot of the problems reported here.
If you are having problems with VSCode please report them in this shtread and we will try to help.
May I ask what you are using Julia for?

Of course! I am a student of Production Engineering. I am studying Julia for applications in Mathematical Optimization and Data Analysis / Data Science.
