3.  Select Component and Uninstall in Extension Manager

You can scroll through the list of installed Extensions to find the component you want to install.  Or you can type it in the search box.  I’m looking for the ‘Advanced Module Manager’ component, so I typed in ‘advanced’ in my search box.  You can also see the ‘Type’ column shows ‘Component’ to confirm you are uninstalling a component.
