I've searched everywhere and the only information I can find is how to install profiles, not how to uninstall unwanted profiles!
Nowhere can I find where the profiles are stored.
I don't have the particular (purchased) profiles on Classic anymore, they were uninstalled a few months ago, so LR CC can't be picking them up from those files (can they?).
The profiles are visible both on LR CC desktop and when I look on the iPhone so have they been stored on Adobe Cloud somewhere? Quite possibly that's the answer as I can't find them locally.
How do I find them and delete them please?
Thanks for any help.

Custom creative profiles can be removed by right-clicking on them and then choosing to remove them. Custom camera profiles (the .dcp type) cannot be removed right now. I hope Adobe changes this oversight.

Thank you Johan.
There are a lot of Profiles I want to delete but you are right they can be deleted by right clicking, but only one at a time (shift or control to highlight more than one doesn't work).
However from the direction you pointed me, I saw the three dots next to profiles and Manage Profiles, which lets me hide the folders with the profiles, so that will serve my purpose for now.
However it only seems to work on the Desktop version, I can't find a way to either delete or hide on the iPhone.
