I'm editing a JS script file using SharePoint Designer and would like to upload it on to /_layouts/15/SFS.Ashok.Refer/scripts .Where is the folder stored on the SharePoint Designer?

1 Answer 1


The folder isn't in SharePoint Designer (or more specifically, isn't inside the web/site collection) instead it is in 15 hive which is physically located here (and is shared with all the webs/site collections):

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15

  • I don't have this location in my PC: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15.

  • @Ngeshlew, are you looking on the SharePoint server's file system? Dec 11, 2014 at 12:23

    Yes this will exist on SharePoint server's file system only. If you don't have access to it, you might need to create a Visual Studio WSP solution to put your JavaScript files in 15 hive. Dec 11, 2014 at 12:25
  • Guys, I am working on SharePoint Online. If it's possible to map the site, then I have not been able to do that.

    Actually, it's under TEMPLATE. That is, /_layouts corresponds to C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS.
