  • Hi,

    For Disabling IE11:

    Right click the Start icon and select Control Panel.

    Click Programs.

    Choose Programs & Features.

    In the left sidebar, select Turn Windows features on or off.

    Uncheck the box next to Internet Explorer 11.

    Select Yes from the pop-up dialogue.

    Press OK.

  • Doing that opens Server Manager, and I can't find anything in Server Manager to disable or uninstall it.

  • That article is about removing IIS 8.5 from Windows Server 2012R2!?

    The OP clearly asks how to uninstall IE 11 from Windows Server 2016?

    I am also interested in how to uninstall IE 11 from Windows Server 2016 and my server doesn't even have IIS installed at all, in the first place (as is standard fro a vanilla installation of Windows Server).

    The reference was intended to offer generic guidance on the use of server manager and powershell, to remove features, since their pile-on question suggested they didn't know how to use the tool. IIS and IE11 are merely features, like dozens of other features, all added/removed in the same way.

  • an alternative is to use DISM:

    dism /online /disable-feature /featurename:Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64

    The documentation is here:
