Might be worth mentioning that I used the wrong userscript directory 
because I misunderstood the documentation. It says userscripts need to 
be, "stored in your data directory under 'userscripts'". On the Windows 
platform I took "data directory" to be a reference to qutebrowser's 
install location under "AppData/Local" and formed the rest of the path 
based on the unix userscript path (which does not include the 'data' 

I suggest the documentation could explicitly state the Windows 
userscript path. Even better would be if 'qute:version' output included 
the full userscripts directory ||path, in the same way that it currently 
includes the "Desktop" path in unix and "Imported from" path in Windows. 
That way the information would be available on every platform 
qutebrowser runs on.
