I've done as you asked. I have 48 "Hidden Devices." None seem to be a sound device. For what should I be looking?

Once I get to Environmental Variables, I have two "subwindows" one for Variables for James Saklas (that's me) and the other for System Variables. For each of these, I have 3 options buttons: New; Edit; and Delete. I do not have Add. Inside each of these two window are 2 columns, one for variables and the other for their associated Value.

What should I do?
