BCL measure download directory

I would like to be able to edit measures that were downloaded from the BCL from within OpenStudio, but I cannot find the filepath to these measures. I understand that I could probably just download the measure directly from the BCL website, but this will not allow me to see the effect my edits have on the behavior of the measure. I would have thought they'd be found somewhere like C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenStudio 1.14.0\measures. This is not the case. Where are these measures kept?

On Windows: C:\Users\your_username\BCL

That said, I would NOT recommend directly editing BCL measures. Instead, copy them using the x2 button and edit the copy in your measure directory.

Thank you @mdahlhausen. The folder names for the BCL measures also make it really difficult to find what you're looking for. Another reason to work with duplicate measures.
