Answer: SketchUp saves all the components in your projects template folder. Your SketchUp template folder can be found in one of these locations by default:
C:Documents and SettingsApplication DataSketchUp
Users Appdata in My Documents.. Siblings to that folder are Templates & Plugins. Any other file folders with similar names will be renamed automatically if they're not compatible with Sketchup files when it's launched, try renaming the respective parent folder separately- this may get Sketchup to launch. If you get no conflict message, then try dragging&dropping any

Sketchup where are my components saved? The default location for a user to save their components is the app's cache folder, found at:Users[YOUR-USERNAME]AppDataLocalGoogleSketchUp8.0. Note: older versions of SketchUp could vary in location information. In those cases use Google as a resource for how to locate an old program installation. Saving anything outside of that directory will cause SketchUP to prompt you with warnings and error messages because it cannot find the component files that belong to your project file.

Component Storage Location. The default location of SketchUp components is in your user directory under 'Documents/Sketchup 2019/Components'. You can see what's inside that directory by enlarging it to show the 8.3 filenames on the icons. This will also open up some other items on your file system which are not part of this folder, so close the window again when you're done with it. Alternately, if you press and hold down Ctrl as you click or double-click a component name in the Components Browser (using Windows) or Components Viewer (using Mac OS), those files should automatically open in their original formats for those programs now installed on your computer.
