Suddenly the Automator workflows that are located in

/Users/<user_acct>/Library/Services

no longer show up in a Services item in the contextual menu when right clicking on files and/or folders. Rather, the individual workflows simply show up in the contextual menu like they did in 10.5.8

Actually, there is no Services item in the contextual menu. What is going on?

    The Services submenu only shows up if you have a number of services. It may also depend on how big the main contextual menu is, but I'm not sure about that.

    Ensure that you've enabled them in the Keyboard prefPane->Keyboard Shortcuts->Services.

    Thanks for the feedback. Glad you figured out that little anomaly. Good computing.
