Increasing the fee using another wallet

How can I access the account in Leather wallet on another Bitcoin wallet to increase the fee on a transaction.
This guide can be used when Leather does not allow you to increase the fee.
This guide can help prevent waiting any longer if... 1. All your BTC was used for the pending transaction or if. 2. the BTC left in the wallet after the transaction is to low to cover a high enough fee to get processed quickly enough. This guide will not help if your pending transaction is sending an ordinal (typically from a taproot address starting with (bc1q...) and the fee is funded with BTC from the BTC balance address (starting with bc1q...).
