Default calling a program from the command line

When I open the, the default directory is c:\docs&settings\username\, or whatever.

Let's say I need to run a program called GO.exe, located in c:\utilities\. How can I run this without having to change directories, or specifiy the directory everytime?

I seem to remember back when I was in school, and using command-line-based Java compiler, that I could edit some file to make this possible. Maybe I'm completely wrong, but it would be really helpful if this is possible. Anyone?

Figured it out. Just had to edit the PATH Environment Variable.
