I’m not a native English speaker, and I’m still learning. “I will let you know” sounds kind of commanding to me. Is it rude to say, “I will let you know”? What are other ways to say this?

It is quite informal so, it may sound assertive, but it’s not rude – it will be rude if you said it in a rude tone, or if you didn’t let them know after saying that you’ll let them know, haha.
But yeah, it’s not rude to say that.
Some alternative phrases you can use:
I will keep you informed/posted/updated.
I will contact you.
I will inform you.
I will get back to you.
Specifying what or when will make your sentence better. For example, “I will inform you of my answer by the end of the day.”
