In my previous post i posted about on “How to install windows features” using powershell v3. Today i am about to post about how to un-install them.

The un-installation of windows features using powershell quite easy as installing them.

Let’s start.

Lets check if we still have “XPS-Viewer” installed as feature on our windows 8 server machine.,

Get-WindowsFeature -Name "XPS-Viewer"

So XPS-Viewer is still installed.
