Removing all duplicate rows

Just recording here an update to my old ‘having’ way to remove duplicate rows

WITH cte AS (
SELECT SomeColumnName,
row_number() OVER(PARTITION BY SomeColumnName ORDER BY SomeColumnName) AS [rn]
from [SomeDatabaseName].[dbo].[SomeTableName]
)
select * from cte where [rn] > 1 -- #1 test
-- delete cte where [rn] > 1 -- #2 execute
