Use can use PowerShell to update your Environment variables.

# Version 11

$path = [System.Environment]::GetEnvironmentVariable('PATH', 'Machine')

$JavaInstallBinDir = "C:\Progra~1\RedHat\java-11-openjdk-\bin"

$path += ";$JavaInstallBinDir"

[Environment]::SetEnvironmentVariable("PATH", $path, "Machine")

$JavaInstallRootDir = "C:\Progra~1\RedHat\java-11-openjdk-"

[Environment]::SetEnvironmentVariable("JAVA_HOME", $JavaInstallRootDir, "Machine")

Or if you wanted to go with command prompt for version 11

setx /m PATH "%PATH%;C:\Progra~1\RedHat\java-11-openjdk-\bin"

setx /m JAVA_HOME "C:\Progra~1\RedHat\java-11-openjdk-"
