How do you delete device sensor template?



Can someone provide me the link (or tell me how) to delete device sensor templates? I found an article over 12 years old on this site and the folder it says to go to does not exist for my install. Looking for a guide that is not a decade old. I'm find if I have to do this directly on the server.

To remove device templates, you have to manually delete them in the \devicetemplates sub folder of your PRTG program directory. By default the path is "C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\devicetemplates"
