Organise scripts into subfolders?

Hi, over the past 10yrs of using ae I've gathered quite a few scripts which are currently sitting in my script UI folder.

 

However, since they're all in there it is quite messy to go through inside of AE.

 

Is there any way to save scripts into organized sub-folders so it's easier to locate a specific script I want?

 

For example I could then put all my character rigging/animation scripts into one folder etc.

AE can't do this built-in, check out scripts like KBar or others on AE scripts to group and manage your scripts.

I think there is no way, AE won't find the scripts if they are in subfolders.You can check this very easy, if you create a subfolder and move one script in there, then you start AE and look up this script.

 

But there are some toolbars, script launchers and similar script out there. If you find a good one, please report back. I'm in the exact same situation.

I hate that the UI scripts are in the Window item.  This Menu is very full as it is.  UI Scripts should be a top level menu and allow folders like effects can.  A searchable menu would help.  I feel the best implementation would be a Scripts Panel.  Forget UI vs non UI, dump them all in here in category folders.  Use aescript categories.  The developer will determine what is UI and not UI.  If it's an application load performance issue, ok, then keep UI seperate.  If it is cosmetic, we don't need a seperation.
