Change WINDOW type (in Python) (there are THREE major windows panels, each can be many types: Script, Timeline, 3D View etc etc...) to USER PREFERENCES FIRST. Make sure The three panels are NOT one line thin or else it will hide other settings. (this is what I hate about blender, UBER unintuitive interface). THen set the PYTHON SCRIPT DIR to a temporary folder somewhere on the HDD.
