No, you did not set $PATH, you only changed the current/working

When you type a command, it is looked for in the directories from
$PATH; if . (the working directory) exists in $PATH (which is the
wrong thing) then the command will also be looked in the working
directory. This is different from DOS where the command is first
looked in . and then in $PATH.

Just grab the nearest "Unix/Linux for dummies" manual for this
