Uninstall all Azure PowerShell Modules

With Azure PowerShell modules changing all the time and the recent introduction of the PowerShell modules being renamed from AzureRm to Az, you may want to totally uninstall all modules and reinstall to make sure you are using the latest and greatest modules.

To do so, StackOverflow user BlueSky, wrote a handy dandy script that will go through and cleanup all the Azure(RM)(AD) modules.  Simply open up PowerShell as an Administrator and execute the following PowerShell workflow/commands:

workflow Uninstall-AzureModules
    $Modules = @()
    $Modules += (Get-Module -ListAvailable Azure*).Name
    $Modules += (Get-Module -ListAvailable Az.*).Name
    Foreach -parallel ($Module in ($Modules | Get-Unique))
        Write-Output ("Uninstalling: $Module")
        Uninstall-Module $Module -Force
Uninstall-AzureModules   #second invocation to truly remove everything

The thing about the PowerShell script above being a workflow is this allows you to remove all the modules in parallel vs one-by-one.  Here’s a screenshot of the script in action.

Hope this helps!

How to remove print drivers in Windows 7

Inside of Windows 7, you will need to use the printui.exe utility. Before proceeding, I would recommend removing your printer from the Devices and Printers area to prevent issues from removing the driver itself.

  1. Open up a command prompt with Administrator privileges
  2. Execute: printui /s /t2
  3. Select the Drivers tab inside the Print Server Properties dialog box
  4. Select the print driver you would like to remove and click Remove…
  5. Check Remove driver and driver package.
  6. Click OK

You can now reinstall the printer successfully by using group policy (if you have you have a print server) or manually with the installation wizards.
