Enabling, disabling, and uninstalling features with the update manager

You can browse and manage your configuration from the Product Configuration dialog. Open the Product Configuration dialog by clicking Help > Software Updates > Manage Configuration .

  1. Disabling a feature: select the feature and click Disable in the right pane of the dialog. This option is available only when the feature is currently enabled, and the feature is either an optional feature or a root feature (not included by other features).
  2. Enabling a feature: First, ensure Show Disabled Features is turned on in the tool bar. Then, select a disabled optional or root feature and click Enable in the right pane of the dialog.
  3. Uninstalling a feature: features that you have installed using the update manager can be uninstalled, provided they are already disabled, or that they are optional or root features. If the feature is disabled, make sure Show Disabled Features is turned on in the tool bar. Select the feature and click Uninstall in the right page of the dialog.
