I had enabled Install from JED option at the backend.
Now I want to disable it.
How can it be done.

Go to the Plugin Manager and disable the plugin "Installer - Install from Web"

It does not work in Joomla 3.5.0
I disabled this plugin, but it is enabled in Extension - Manage - Install menu
How to disable it completely?*
*(It works, after update or upload any extension through upload package file button)

*Update: When I upload / update an extension manually, the "install from web" option will be disabled, and gone.

Maybe it's a little bug.

Disabling is not the same as uninstalling. If you only disable the "install from web" you will once again see the "Add Install from Web tab" button in the Extension installer screen. but there's nothing preventin gyou completely uninstalling, just like any other extension, choose it from the "manage" list and click the Uninstall button.

See the screenshots below.

Just be aware, this will likely return when you update the core system......since "install from web" (though it may not be activated by default) is part of the core system installation. I'd guess you'd have to repeat the "uninstall" every time you update Joomla.
