    Programdata file on Windows 8

    Hello all.
    Bit of a technophobe......
    I have Adodbe Photoshop Elements installed on my Windows 8 PC. I am trying to upload some new actions to PSE and am being told to copy them into the Adobe file in the Programdata file. I cant find it anywhere.

    I have clicked on the view/show hidden folders and still no luck. Is anyone able to help. Would be much appreciated.

    I looked. Programdata is hidden at C:. You should be able to see it a Computer > C:.
