Tips: Quickly remove features of Windows Server 2008 R2

In the last article, we have discussed about adding a quick add feature to the Windows Server 2008 R2 Operating System. In this article, let’s discuss about removing the quick add feature from the Windows Server 2008 R2 Operating System. Here, we can configure the operating system components as Windows features that we can turn ON or OFF rather than add or remove. You can go with the following features to add the server features.
•    First, it is required to launch Server Manager (Start | Administrative Tools | Server Manager).
•    Now, in Server Manager, it is required to select Features in the left pane.
•    Then, click Add Features in the Features to start the Add Features Wizard. (If the wizard displays the Before You Begin page, read the intro text and click Next. You can avoid seeing this page the next time you start this wizard by selecting the Skip This Page By Default check box before you click Next.).

•    Now, on the Select Features page, the currently installed features will be selected. If you wish to remove them, it is required to uncheck the check box.
•    If you try to remove a feature that another feature depends on, you will see a warning stating that it can’t be removed unless we remove the other feature.
•    Once it is done, you can click the Remove Dependent Feature button or remove both features.
•    If you’ve finished selecting the features that you wish to remove, it is required to click on Next and then click on the Remove option.
•    All it is done.
