How to modify Disk Partitions in Windows 10


1. Use DiskPart Utility

Go to command line and type diskpart.

Type this command to list all disks in computer:

list disk

If you want to check info about a disk (for example, disk 1), type these commands:

select disk 1

detail disk


2. Run Disk Management Utility

Go to Start and type “Disk Management”. An option to open Disk Manager will appear.

Alternatively, type Windows + R and enter “diskmgmt.msc

Each row corresponds to a different disk, as seen on diskpart utility.


Remember that you cannot merge partitions from different disks.
