Add Application to AppPath Using PowerShell

Thanks Jeff Scripter for this nugget: @JeffTheScripter

Why do this?  Because I want to press WindowsKey+R and type in the application and have it launch.  I don’t want to have to search the start menu, or the drive if there is no start menu shortcut.  I just want it to be in the path so it will launch in any context when I type the name.

For my Example, I’m going to use CMTrace, since I use it a ton, and when I type it in, and it doesn’t launch, I find it annoying that I have to type the pull path (c:\windows\ccm\cmtrace.exe)
