# Why I can use node.js without settiing environment variable path on windows?

I use windows10.
My node.js’s path is `C:\Program Files\nodejs\node.exe` and I can use `node` command.

But I haven’t set my environment variable path.
It does not mean just that I have not set it myself. I checked the user environment variables and the system environment variables but could not find them. (The path of npm was in the user environment variable.)

Why can I use `node` command without setting path?
