It would help to know which version of Windows you are using. I will
assume 7 or 10. Under Windows 7, try Start / Control Panel / Programs
and Features. Search for TeX Live 2021. Click to highlight it, then
use the Uninstall/Change option that will manifest itself in the menu
line. Under Windows 10, possibly something similar.
