If you run any Windows Servers, you may run into a scenario where you want to remove access to Internet Explorer. Usually, any administrators that log into servers won’t have a need for it anyway, plus it can be a security concern. Sometimes, you might have a server that refuses to update to the latest version (as of this writing is IE11). Here’s how to remove Internet Explorer (IE) from Windows Server.

Open a Command Prompt with Administrative Privledges.

To get a list of all of your enabled features, run this command:

dism /online /get-features

One of the features is Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64.

To remove Internet Explorer (IE), run this command:

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

You’ll see:

Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
Version: 6.1.7600.16385

Image Version: 6.1.7600.16385

The operation completed successfully.
Restart Windows to complete this operation.

After the restart, Internet Explorer (IE) won’t be available.

If you need to add it back, replace /disable-feature with /enable-feature in the command above.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
