This topic applies to Visual Studio on Windows. For Visual Studio for Mac, see Uninstall Visual Studio for Mac.

If you're having trouble with your instance of Visual Studio, try the Repair tool. For more information, see Repair Visual Studio.

If you want to change the location for some of your Visual Studio files, it's possible to do so without uninstalling your current instance. For more information, see Select the installation locations in Visual Studio.

Find the Visual Studio Installer on your computer.

For example, on a computer running Windows 10 Anniversary Update or later, select Start and scroll to the letter V, where it's listed as Visual Studio Installer.

On some computers, the Visual Studio Installer might be listed under the letter "M" as the Microsoft Visual Studio Installer.

Alternatively, you can find the Visual Studio Installer in the following location: C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Visual StudioInstallervs_installer.exe

In the installer, look for the edition of Visual Studio that you installed. Next, choose More, and then choose Uninstall.

Click OK to confirm your choice.
