I've heard of some software that let you "record" the actions you do in desktop (based on images), so if you do something and "record it", then you execute it and what you recorded can be reproduced later on.

Do you know the name of this software?

This kind of software is called "Macro Recorders". Wikipedia has a comparison article of macro recorders.

Most known free macro recorder is AutoHotKey (great for automation not so great for recording).

Most known commercial one is Jitbit Macro Recorder (it can compile macros to EXE files).

There are a number of tools that can do this, but I can't tell from your description if there's a specific one you have in mind.

Wikipedia has a nice list of UI testing tools that would do this - some are open source, some closed. Take a look here.
