Fully Qualified Path in .NET

I was writing a program where I had to resolve its fully qualified path using Environment Variables. Here’s how it is done using the ‘PATH’ Environment variable

static void Main(string[] args)
// List Environment Variables
foreach (DictionaryEntry de in Environment.GetEnvironmentVariables())
Console.WriteLine("{0}={1}", de.Key, de.Value);

Console.WriteLine("Fully Qualified Path");
string ext = "notepad.exe";
string fullPath = Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("PATH")
.FirstOrDefault(p => File.Exists(Path.Combine(p, ext)));

OUTPUT (partial)
