How to Uninstall Phone Link on Windows 11

I just bought a new Acer laptop with 8GB RAM and it has Windows 11 operating system. One day, I opened it and when it already loaded my desktop it is very slow. I have to force shutdown it because it hangs a lot. After restarting my laptop, I have found in the Task Manager that Windows Phone Link is eating over 100 MB of my RAM (see image below).

I never used this default app before so I decided to just remove it. And for this tutorial, I will show you how to do it.
