Hi, I just started learning Java. I just downloaded the API docs for Java SE 7 and extracted them. How do I create the path to the /bin directory?

I assume you mean that you've installed the Java JDK* and you need to add the /bin location to your PATH environment variable. Is that what you mean?

What operating system are you using?

* You did get the JDK and not the JRE, right?

Welcome to the Ranch.

It's explained in the JDK installation instructions: Updating the PATH Environment Variable

Welcome again
Unless you already have a CLASSPATH variable, don't do anything about CLASSPATHs at this stage.

I got the JDK and not the JRE, and yes, adding the /bin to the PATH environment variable is what I mean. I run Windows 7 64-bit

I was going to post the steps, but that link Jesper provided details everything you need.

And welcome to the Ranch.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
