Completely Remove a Feature from Site Collection

After you deploy a feature (from Visual Studio) to Sharepoint 2010, you can see the feature in Site Actions à Site Settings à Site Collection Features, from there you can activate or deactiate the feature.

But to completely remove the feature from your site collection, use the following command in Sharepoint Management Shell:


Note: Each feature is available is in its own subdirectory in the path:
%ProgramFiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\14\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\

You need to use the actual subdirectory name (not the name shown in the Site Collection Features screen) in order to uninstall it. You need to deactivate the feature before removing it.
