Automator workflow not showing up under Services tab in Keyboard shortcuts | Mac
I’m trying to create a keyboard shortcut to run the shell command

~/Library/Services it still doesn’t show up in
System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Services > General or anywhere else under the services tab.
I have tried rebooting and creating new ones but it just doesn’t seem to want to show up. This is my first time creating an Automator workflow so I am not sure if I am missing a crucial step.

I ran the test and it successfully locks my screen but now I am scratching my head as to how I am gonna get the service to show up as an option. Any suggestions?
