How do I delete Essential Graphics Templates?

Just like the title says, how the heck do I delete Essential Graphics Templates?  A  week or so ago ALL of my Essential Graphics templates quit working (Ones that come with Premiere, One I bought from Adobe Stock, and a handful from a third party company.).  So I uninstalled Premiere and reinstalled it.  That fixed the ones that come with Premiere and the one I have from Adobe Stock, however the third party ones still do not work.  So I'm trying to delete them and I simply cannot do it.  As soon as I reinstalled Premiere they were already sitting there in the Essential Graphics tab.

I specifically chose "Do Not Save My Preferences" when I uninstalled Premiere but when I reinstalled it, all of my preferences and settings were exactly the same as before.  Now if I click one of the non-working templates and right click, Delete is greyed out.  So if I just click the 'Delete' keyboard button I'm prompted "Are you sure you want to delete?" I click yes, and nothing happens.  The Template is still there and still non-functional.  If I try to fresh install the templates, they install second versions of them but they still do not work.

The parameters of these templates are completely blank.  It is like they are blank slates that never did anything to begin with.  However all of their previews still function and appear as they should, so clearly there is data there Premiere just isn't picking up.  I used these templates for a few weeks before they just suddenly quit working last week.

Here is a shot of the templates with zero info:

Use the Adobe CC Cleaner Tool to both uninstall Pr and do the cleanup of related files. Don't have the link on my phone but it is listed on the Overview page of this forum.Neil

Do a Windows search for .morgt to find where they are located and then delete them from there..

Ok, I closed Premiere, deleted all the offending .mogrt files, and reopened Premiere.  The thumbnails are still in Premiere and still not doing a damn thing.  Search for the .mogrt files and they are nowhere to be found on my drive.

Sigh.  I uninstalled Premiere.  Went into "Documents - Adobe" and deleted everything associated with Premiere Pro.  Then I reinstalled Premiere.  When I loaded it up, the Motion Graphics Templates were all still there!  And all of my preferences were still all set the same as before.  Despite me clicking "Delete Preferences" when I uninstalled AND manually deleting files.  Is this some cloud sync thing?

I just uninstalled again, manually scrubbed EVERY Premiere Pro folder I could find across my drive, and reinstalled.  Again all my settings came right back when I installed again (Next time I'll find the scrubber tool.) BUT suddenly the Templates are working.  No rhyme or reason, they just suddenly work.  I don't even know where the heck they are installed now, but here I am.

In the Essential Graphics panel, the option to delete the template was grayed out for me after I created it. I searched through all the roaming folders on my PC and application folders. Still, I couldn't find how to delete it on the back end. Finally, I found the solution: You have to go to the Libraries window panel instead of the Essential Graphics panel in order to click on the template to delete it. Motion_Graphics_Templates_Creating_Deleting.jpg

The previous image I posted wasn't as clear as I wanted it to be. I think this image explains things better:Motion_Graphics_Templates_Ceating_Deleting.jpg
