WordPress how to find the source of a shortcode

I am working with wordpress and want to change the output of a shortcode that I wrote myself earlier. Because I forgot where I put it (bad organizing when I started with wp) I wondered whether there is a list of all shortcodes with their source files in the wp database somewhere?

You can use the following code to get a list of all registered shortcodes.

This will unfortunately not give you the source files of these shortcodes but a simple search through your plugins and themes should reveal the location of the shortcode.

<?php
    global $shortcode_tags;
    echo '<pre>'; 
    print_r($shortcode_tags); 
    echo '</pre>';
?>
