If I remove myself from the trusted list of profiles using the bulk removal tool, will it affect the profiles I manage or co-manage?I don't see an answer to this specific question. I want to have only profiles I manage to be on my watch list; I want to remove the ones where I am on the trusted list but don't manage.

Great question, Jacqueline. When you use the bulk removal tool, it will list every profile that you manage or co-manage.  There will be a small box in front of each profile so you can select only the profiles that you want to remove yourself from.  The profiles that you do not check will not be affected.

Thanks for your reply. I want to remove myself from those profiles where I'm only on the trusted list using the bulk removal tool. I want to use the select all option so I don't have to look at each one to see if it's one I manage or don't manage. (I know I can open a second window and see that, but doing hundreds this way is still a chore.) I want to stay as manager on the ones I currently manage. When you use the bulk tool, you can't see the ones you manage, but since there are two bulk removal tools: one for removing yourself as manager, and one for removing yourself from the trusted list, I want to be sure I understand what each one does. Thanks.
From your regular watchlist, the third column (Status/ID) has M in front of the profiles of which you are the Profile Manager.  If there is no M, then you are only on the trusted list, this might be your easiest option even though you'll need to do them one by one.
**dislike** but thanks for the sad news.
Thanks for asking this Jacqueline!    I too wanted to  "select all"  and remove the nearly thousand profiles where some one accidentally put me on the trusted list.
