Note: In this demo, I’m using macOS Big Sur (11.0.1) but the method should work on any environment.

How to uninstall the package individually

To uninstall individual Python package, you need to execute the below command in the CLI.

pip uninstall [package name]

In the [package name], put the name of the package you want to uninstall.

As you can see the above screenshots, it will uninstall all the packages you have installed.
