I just started looking into aliases and I already created a couple aliases before reading how to write alias commands into files so you can easily edit them. If you just directly run the command alias thing=whatever_you_want_to_happen, how can you edit/remove this alias? Is there a command to run that will show you all the aliases you have created?

[H]ow can you edit/remove [an] alias?

Use unalias:

unalias thing

To remove all aliases at once, you can use the -a switch.

Is there a command to run that will show you all the aliases you have created?

Just execute the plain command:

alias
