.symfix (Set Symbol Store Path)
The .symfix command automatically sets the symbol path to point to the Microsoft symbol store.
Causes the Microsoft symbol store path to be appended to the existing symbol path. If this is not included, the existing symbol path is replaced.
Specifies the directory to be used as a local symbol cache. If this directory does not exist, it will be created when the symbol server begins copying files. If LocalSymbolCache is omitted, the sym subdirectory of the debugger installation directory will be used.

The following example shows how to use .symfix to set a new symbol path that points to the Microsoft symbol store.

The following example shows how to use .symfix+ to append the existing symbol path with a path that points to the Microsoft symbol store.
3: kd> .sympath Symbol search path is: c:\someSymbols Expanded Symbol search path is: c:\somesymbols 3: kd> .symfix+ c:\myCache 3: kd> .sympath Symbol search path is: c:\someSymbols;srv* Expanded Symbol search path is: c:\somesymbols;cache*c:\myCache;SRV*https://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols
