2 - Locate the “Scripts” Folder inside the “Adobe Illustrator” Folder. In a Mac, head to Applications > Adobe Illustrator (the version you are using) > Presets > (Your Language Folder) > Scripts.
3 - In a PC, head to My Computer > Program Files > Adobe > Adobe Illustrator (the version you are using) > Presets > (Your Language Folder) > Scripts.
4 - Right-click on top of the “Script” File and select “Copy”. Then, head to the “Scripts” Folder, right-click inside and “Paste” the file. You may need to input your “Administrator” Password.
5 - Open “Adobe Illustrator” (make sure it is the version where you saved the “Script”). It should be available after launching. Open the file you want to work with.
6 - To use the “Script” go to File > Scripts and select the one you want. Depending on the script, you may need to select parts of the “Artwork” for it to work.
7 - You may also launch a “Script” that is not installed by going to File > Scripts > Other Script and navigating to where you saved the one you want.
