I have a scheduled job in my org which was scheduled 2 years ago without an end date. It runs every Friday at a specific time, which means it was scheduled using a cron expression. If I delete that scheduled job directly will it be aborted? Or else should it be aborted with some code?

    You can schedule for every Friday at a specific time through the UI. The scheduling pattern you describe by no means indicates a cron expression had to be used.

Deleting the scheduled job is enough. It will not run again.

You can also delete using code.

for (CronTrigger ct : [SELECT Id FROM CronTrigger WHERE CreatedBy.Name='xxx']) {

    @learner_sfdc : No worries - deleting the scheduled job from the UI or code will not cause any issues.
