      Hello Neil

      I think the best way is to open vim or gvim and then type

      :echo $HOME

      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.
