Here is the easiest ways to remove System Preference Panes you’ve added over time and no longer need. Simply control-click, or right-click, on a preference icon in the Others section of your System Preferences (the Other section contains the custom preferences installed by users). A pop-up menu lets you remove the selected preference pane.

This is a great way for those of you who don’t want to go digging through various Library folders looking for the actual preference pane manually.
