Default Standalone use of MS Script Editor?

I have looked at the MS Script Editor in Office 2003 referred to on p.32 of VBScript - 3rd Edition. It is opened within Word, say and setup to generate scripts embedded in that application. Can I use the MS Script Editor in a standalone manner, not tied to a particular Office application? Just open it like NotePad and edit my .vbs file? I want to use VBScripts solely in Windows to help manage PC's on a LAN, manipulating files/folders, logon scripts,...

I am used to the VBA IDE and want to use a similar editing environment, replete with auto-typing, contextual indentation, syntax checking, variable verification, and so on. I've looked at 'jedit' briefly - out of the 'box' it doesn't do as the VBA editors do. I'd be happy to get advice on what third-party product to use if the MS offering is not appropriate.

Sure, by default Microsoft Script Editor is installed in
Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11
and is MSE7.EXE
You can start it with that and open and edit your vbs scripts with it that way.
