For stacks in memory, Panos' suggestion of changing Prefs to show IDE 
stacks is great.

For stack files (including script-only stacks) on disk, see the Toolset 
folder in your LC app bundle/folder.

For super-quick access to IDE scripts, consider devolution's MPath, 
which not only has a checkbox for showing LC scripts, but even more 
easily that can be toggled with the space bar while the MPath pane is open:

Designed for quick access for scripting, everything in devolution's 
MPath pane has hot key shortcuts:

The devolution plugin for LC is freely available here:

Yes, "if". ;)

Tip: given the frequency of new LC builds, I've found it very helpful to 
automate IDE modification through scripts triggered on launch, as 
opposed to modifying the IDE stacks on disk.

Two benefits to this approach:

1. If you like your changes, they'll survive LC updates.

2. If you don't like your changes, reverting back requires nothing more 
than removing your plugin and re-launching.
