How To Uninstall Phone Link on Windows 11 (Your Phone)

Note: Your Phone app has been renamed to Phone Link.

Phone Link, previously known as Your Phone, is a built-in app that lets you connect your Android or iOS phone to Windows 11. Once connected, you can browse photos, make phone calls, respond to messages, open apps, mirror screen, and more. While the app is useful, it’s just a waste of space and system resources if you are not using it. Thankfully, you can remove it if you want. In this tutorial, we’ll show you a simple way to uninstall Phone Link from Windows 11. Let’s get started.

Uninstall Phone Link in Windows 11 (Your Phone)

To uninstall Phone Link, you have to run the Remove-AppxPackage command. To do that, press Windows key + X and choose Terminal (Admin). The terminal window opens with the PowerShell tab active by default. If not, you can open it by selecting Windows PowerShell from the dropdown menu in the title bar.

Generally, apps installed from the Microsoft Store can be uninstalled by selecting the “Uninstall” option in the “Apps > Installed Apps” page of the Settings app or by searching for it in the Start menu, right-clicking on the app, and then selecting the “Uninstall” option.

Being a system application, the Uninstall option for the Phone Link app is blocked. However, you can uninstall it using the PowerShell command, just as shown above.

And there you have it! While a bit complicated, it is still fairly easy to uninstall Phone Link on Windows 11 as long as you follow the steps.
