Disable or enable actions in an Automator workflow on Mac
If you want a workflow to run without a particular actions, you can disable it. Any information usually passed to it is passed to the next action. When you want to use the action in the workflow again, simply enable it.
Press and hold the Control key, then click the action to display the shortcut menu.
Choose Disable or Enable from the shortcut menu.
Note: If you disable an action that generates data required for the workflow, or is otherwise necessary for it to run, the workflow will fail.
