Disk Management is a built-in tool in Windows 10 which can help make some simple partition managements like create, delete, and format partitions. It is able to help you resize partition Windows 10 though it still has some limitations.

To resize partition Windows 10 with Disk Management, you can follow the steps as below.

Step 1. Right-click the Windows Start menu and choose Disk Management.

Note: To extend a partition, there must be contiguous unallocated space behind the partition that you want to extend. Besides, Disk Management is unable to resize a FAT 32 partition as the Extend Volume or Shrink Volume function only works to a RAW or NTFS partition, which could cause inconvenience.

So, Disk Management is not our best choice anyway, as it is not comprehensive enough for user to perform various disk management operations. Therefore, I would like to recommend a free partition manager - MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition – a powerful and absolutely free software to resize partition for home and individual users.
