The steps to uninstall ReShade on FFXIV are identical to how you install the software in the first place. Begin by going to the ReShade website and downloading the latest version of the application by pressing on the link I've highlighted in the image above. Run the app from the download folder and if you get a warning message, click More info and then Run anyway to launch the software. This happens when Windows Defender detects a third-party application, but you don't have to worry as ReShade is safe.
