If I created a service using Automator, how can I delete it if I no longer want it?

You can do this by:

  1. In the Finder, press G to Go to Folder.

  2. Type "~/Library/Services"

  3. Find the service you no longer want

  4. Drag it to the Trash

  • This doesn't seem to remove services for selected text, e.g. right-click any selected text from Notes, you'd see a list of text-oriented services that have no .workflow under ~/Library/Services. Do you know how to cope with this? – kakyo Feb 2 at 19:38

    @kakyo If you are trying to remove services that you didn’t create yourself, the program that created them may have put them in /Library/Services/ (starting from the root of your filesystem, not your home folder) instead. – Rory O'Kane Mar 17 at 16:41
