  • You can disable it with:

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

    check available features and status:

    dism /online /get-features

  • Hi,

    One thing we need to tell you at the beginning, for Windows server 2012 system, IE 10 is the only supported Microsoft browser. If you uninstall/disable it, you could only use the third-part browser.

    According to this article below, we can understand that IE 11 isn’t support on Windows Server 2012 system.

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn321440.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

    Meanwhile, from this website below, we can find that IE 9 can’t be installed on Windows Server 2012 either.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/products/ie-9/system-requirements

    Therefore, if you uninstall IE 10, you would not use any IE browser on this system, sure you want to do this?

    If you insist on, you could use DISM commands to achieve it. Type the following content in a CMD with administrative right.

    dism /online /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64

    When you are prompted to restart the computer, select Yes.

    Hope my suggestion can be helpful.

  • Disabling IE using the command:

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

    worked for our situation.
