    I started a new job recently, I would like to transfer all actions I
    have in my Actions Palette to my machine at work (Windows machines in
    both cases, at home W2000, at work XP..) every time I have tried this
    it hasn't worked.. there is a file called Actions Palette.psp in
    C:\...\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop\8.0\Adobe Photoshop CS Settings,
    but copying this file to another machine does noting as it's just a
    shortcut.. can't find any other Actions-related file(s) in my
    C-drive.... where ARE PS-actions stored in a windows machine? (PS
    version is CS 8.0..)

    thank you very much..

    Maybe there are easier ways but this works for me .... put the
    action(s) in a folder (or multiple folders ... this method works on
    folders, not individual actions), select the folder in the Action
    palette and click the fly-out icon and select Save Actions, which lets
    you write an .atn file in any folder you choose ... copy this .atn file
    as needed ... then on the new machine you are moving to just do Load
    Actions and select this .atn file.

    To make this more clear, by 'folder' I meant a 'set' under the action
    palette ...
