Default mel scripts?

I downloaded a toggle x-ray mel script. Now how do I put it into action?
Any help would be much appreciated.

ya know, i've never downloaded a mel script... but i think it belongs somewhere in the scripts folder. which one? no idea. you should have one right under your maya folder in my documents, and then also one under your X.X (enter your version number here) folder under the maya folder... just to play it safe, why not drop it in both before you open maya? *shrug*

NeoStrider has the basic idea. Any MEL scripts need to be in your "Scripts" folder in order for them to work. Accessing them is done either through a command in the script editor, or some scripts allow a shelf item to be created. Any script can be dragged onto the shelf, BTW...
