After PS crashed the entire Action menu has been deleted
And there's nothing in the action folder
If the Action sets (folders) were saved from the Action panel menu, they can now be loaded from the panel menu. If the set was never saved, they are gone.
use system backup: restore points in windows or time machine in macos
Using a restore point may backup you Photoshop references in time if it does not you may be able to get your user ID old Photoshop if backup users Application data. They are in your user ID Photoshop preferences in a file named "Actions Palette.psp" On windows my path is
"C:\Users\(your User ID)\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2020\Adobe Photoshop 2020 Settings\Actions Palette.psp"
Thank YOU sir for the windows path. Totally saved my day.
I just had this hapen to me. I see the Actions Pallette in my folder view but if I go into PS, click load actions and go to that folder and try to load them the file isn't there. It acts as if it is not the correct folder type and doesn't show it. What am I doing wrong?
Did you save the Set previously? Before you tried to load it? Action sets have a ".atn" extension. Try doing a search of your hard drive to see if you saved it in another location.
