Help with Deleting User Defined Swatch Libraries

Hi All,

 

I am trying to delete some old and unused user-defined swatches. I see in other answers to go to " Macintosh HD >> Users >> (YOURUSERNAME) >> Library >> Application Support >> Adobe >> Adobe Illustrator [version number] >> en_US (or other language designation) > Swatches"

But when I navigate to my Adobe folder...I don't see Adobe Illustrator in there anywhere (see screenshot). Anyone have any ideas where it could be or am I missing something obvious? 

I also searched for "Swatches" on my entire HD and none of the folders that came up contain my user-defined swatches (though I did find all of the default swatch libraries).

I was able to find it! I couldn't see the Library in the same way folks suggested, so I went to Show View Options and selected Show Library in Finder. Then I was able to navigate where I needed to be and delete my swatch libraries.

I believe I am in my user folder already—you can see the end of Library in my screenshot above.

If Illustrator is installed on that computer, then there must be Adobe Illustrator folders in there.
