Uninstalling the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ Toolkit

Note

Uninstall Using the Original Installation Package

If you have installed OpenVINO Runtime from archive files, you can uninstall it by deleting the archive files and the extracted folders.

If you have created the symbolic link, remove the link first.

Use either of the following methods to delete the files:

  • Use Windows Explorer to remove the files.

  • Open a Command Prompt and run:

    rmdir /s <extracted_folder>
    del <path_to_archive>
    

If you have created the symbolic link, remove the link first:

rm /home/<USER>/intel/openvino_2022

To delete the files:

rm -r <extracted_folder> && rm <path_to_archive>
