why don't you search? type in *.atn

but PS defaults all recorded actions in your Actions folder just as Rex mentioned.

If you have downloaded actions, unzipped them using Winzip, chances are they will be in the Unzipped folder & sub-folders in Windows.
I found the process of what to do with actions & such a bit frustrating at one time and created a folder on my desktop called Photoshop actions. After unzipping the downloads, I would drag the atn file over and put it in the folder. It was easy to load actions from that folder, and even easier to find them to send to someone or save/back them up.
In the meantime, do a files & folders search for *.atn and you will see where yours are.

I did a *.atn search and only got the default and downloaded files. Never a trace og any avtion I created myself. Very strange.

You can export your actions from Photoshop to a file. Click that arrow thing in the corner of the actions pallette and save the selected action or folder of actions.
