On the other hand, if you open a dos or cmd window and then type
`echo %HOME%´, as others have suggested, you may get the stupid
output `%HOME%´ only, because %HOME% may not be defined. However,
within vim or gvim the $HOME variable is always defined somehow (as
%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH% if %HOME% is not defined, else as %HOME%)
I use to place my personal vimfiles directory also to the place that
vim shows by `:echo $HOME´. Within the vimfiles directory you can
put personal plugins, syntax color definitions etc.
I hope that helps.
