scripts are usually not supposed to be located alongside the main
application (unless special steps a taken, such as configuring portable
Scripts are always located in the "scripts" subdirectory of the resource
folder. The resource folder, in turn, is located in a system-specific
and configurable place. For the defaults, see

If you have the respective TeXworks executables installed, you can also
use "Scripts > Scripting TeXworks > Show Scripts Folder" to determine
the location.


PS: Both MiKTeX and TeXLive may have altered those default locations
(usually to put the configuration files inside the texmf tree). This is
better asked on the respective mailing lists, however, as that are
distro-specific and not part of the "official" Tw code.
