I've only just got round to starting to migrate to VS2017, and I figured that I might as well bite the bullet, and go straight to VS2019 instead (I've been using VS2013 since ... oh, 2015 probably and not needed the newer stuff)
And I might as well tidy up as well. So ... uninstall VS2015 (pile of junk) ... takes longer to uninstall than I remember it taking to install. And it leaves a pile of rubbish lying around that you have to remove manually, except it gives you the wrong paths to them.
OK, let's uninstall VS2017. And what's the first thing I have to do in order to uninstall it? Upgrade the VS2017 installer in order to uninstall everything including the installer ...

I used to make a habit of disabling/disconnecting the internet when both installing and uninstalling [particularly large/complex] apps. They've got an annoying habit of calling home or just annoying you with "why are you leaving" forms.
these days I don't uninstall anything, I just clone a part-ready VM - it's quite surprising how compact and efficient windows actually is without years of cruft, even after installing vs and databases.
