Well, to the best of my belief TeX Live makes only minimal changes to 
the system, modifying the path and possibly changing some file 
associations.  You can easily check whether TeX Live 2021 has been added 
to your (or the system) path, and remove it therefrom, and you can check 
and modify file associations using (e.g.,) "assoc".  Once you have 
undone anything necessary, you can then safely delete the entire TeX 
Live file hierarchy.
