Remove-Module

Remove modules from the current session.

Syntax
      Remove-Module [-ModuleInfo] PSModuleInfo[] [-Force]
         [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [CommonParameters]

      Remove-Module [-Name] String[] [-Force]
         [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [CommonParameters]

Key
   -Force 
       Remove read-only modules. By default, Remove-Module removes only read-write modules.
       The ReadOnly and ReadWrite values are stored in AccessMode property of a module.

   -ModuleInfo PSModuleInfo[]
       Specifies the module objects to remove.
       Enter a variable that contains a module object (PSModuleInfo) or a command
       that gets a module object, such as a Get-Module command. You can also pipe
       module objects to Remove-Module.

   -Name String[]
       Specifies the names of modules to remove.  Wildcards are permitted.
       You can also pipe name strings to Remove-Module.

   -Confirm
       Prompt for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

   -WhatIf
       Show what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

If the module includes an assembly (.dll), all members that are implemented by the assembly are removed, but the assembly is not unloaded.

Remove-Module does not uninstall the module or delete it from the computer. It affects only the current PowerShell session.
