Editor's Note: This file was a File Exchange Pick of the Week

This submission contains three simple, but awesome, utilities:
GOTO: Change current folder to the one containing a specified file.

GOBACK: Change current folder to the one you were in before calling goto.

GETFILE: Put a copy of a file on the path right here.

This is not rocket science, but it sure is convenient!
