Uninstalling .NET Framework can vary based on your operating system. Here are general steps for Windows:

For Windows:
1. Using Control Panel:

2. Using the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool (if needed):

  • Microsoft provides a .NET Framework Cleanup Tool that you can use if the standard uninstallation doesn’t work or if you encounter issues.
  • Download the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool from the official Microsoft website.
  • Run the tool and follow the instructions to remove the selected versions of .NET Framework.

3. Check for other dependencies:

  • Be cautious: Removing .NET Framework versions may affect applications that rely on them. Before uninstalling, make sure you are aware of any dependencies.
  • Reinstallation: If needed, you can reinstall .NET Framework from the official Microsoft website after uninstalling.
  • Windows Update: Some versions of .NET Framework may be installed as part of Windows Update. In such cases, updates to .NET Framework may be managed through the Windows Update process.
