Uninstalling Internet Explorer 11 via Command Line


    • Looking to uninstall IE11 via commandline on a couple hundred PCs that accidentally received the update, anyone have any ideas? The only information on technet is uninstall strings for IE10, which piggybacked on uninstall strings for IE9 - not sure if they still apply, or if there's a better method.

    FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*11.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /quiet /norestart"

  • Hi,

    Vincenzo Di Russo shared a good suggestion.

    In addition, you may try remove it in Control Panel:

    Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features -> View installed updates

    Hope it works.

    please provide more information :)

    (is there an error message or number returned when you try this?)
