Hello!

I have all my things packed in C:/users/me

Is there a way I can put all my work in a folder and have cmd prompt retrieve files from that specific folder?

Not sure, but assuming this is Windows, you can always set up an icon that runs 'cmd' from a particular directory. Eventually, you'll be creating jars so this won't be a problem, so I wouldn't spend a lot of time on it.

Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?

Welcome to the Ranch

java C:\MyFolder\MyOtherFolder\MySubfolder\Foo

??

Try it and see whether it works. But it is usually easier to navigate to that folder.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
