I am a long time Mac user but recently played with Automator for the first time. I was trying to create an automation to automatically take screenshots and then create a powerpoint file from them... I couldn't get it to work the way I wanted and I forgot about it. Fast forward a few days and I notice an unfamiliar spinning gear in my task bar (or whatever its called, the top right of the desktop). A little research reveals that it represents Automator tasks. I was not able to research a way to effectively delete those automator tasks. Basically I want to delete all automator tasks, there are none that I want. Any ideas?
