    I think its
    Project--> Open project properties --> Configuration Properties --> Linker --> General -->
    Additional Libraries Properties and there you put the path there.

    But it didnt work for me so i just used
    #pragma comment (lib, "winmm.lib") in my .cpp file and it worked.
    Windows 10 with Visual Studio 2019 and MingW.

    Inside my computer
    Project--> Open project properties --> Configuration Properties --> Linker --> Input
    Make sure to add it for both Debug and Release.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.
