If you are using Windows 11 at the moment you may have noticed that even tho you are disabling Widgets from the taskbar you can still open it using Windows Key + W or you can see it consuming memory from the Task Manager. In order to definitely remove it you have to remove it from your powershell terminal using the following command running it as Administrator:

Get-AppxPackage *Client.WebExperience* | Remove-AppxPackage

Now you are free of Widgets consuming your resources and you don’t have to think about them ever again. This process can be done with several other pre-installed windows applications so if you want to know how to do so let me know in the comments or Twitter directly :))
