I am using custom Actions in Photoshop and so want to hide the default actions because they are of no use for my workflow and are cluttering the Actions panel in the button Mode.

 

How can I hide them ?

Thank You. But before doing what you suggested, I tried to 'Load actions' to make sure that the default actions are saved somewhere in case I need them in the future. But the Actions folder is empty !

 

So now would like to know if there is a way to bring back the default actions if I need them in the future ?

Adobe actions presets folder on windows its if your default are not there  Photoshop may have some they would add it your reset your Preferences. I can not say I use any of Adobe actions.  I did look at them when I first stared to record my own.image.png

 

Any Action set I create I save to my own folder I load from in all versions of Photoshop. Some I have not used many of them in years.  I keep them around  so I can see what I have done in the past. My RAM is not what it use to be.

You can load default actions which ships with Photoshop from Actions panel menu, look at the bottom and you should see: Commands, Frames...

If you want to see Default Actions set in your Actions panel then Reset actions with Append. See animation below.
