Better management of OS X Services
Authored by: TonyT on Aug 23, '11 08:34:55AM

If I need to uninstall, other than dragging the App to the Trash, what else needs to be done? (couldn't see what the installer was doing)

Better management of OS X Services

To uninstall Service Manager, delete the app, and search for "Service-Manager" (including hidden files). That will turn up a plist file and two (hidden) receipt files, which can then be deleted.

I found another free app "Services Item Menu Utility" on this page of the same website, which simply sets the maximum number of contextual menu services without a sub-menu. Actually, I extracted the AppleScript code from this app and use a modified version of that instead.

Never mind. Command-I in Installer showed me that only the Services Manager App is created, no other files installed (not counting any plists, package receipts, etc.)
