Cannot extend my partition, greyed out

Hi,
Not sure where to post this, sorry if in wrong place.

I am trying to extend my C Drive as i have a large amount of free space
However the option to do so is greyed out

Anyone have any ideas on how I can do this?

Thanks.

You need to rightclick on the Free Space to Delete Volume as it is still Logical as shown by the green.

First time Delete was to delete the partition. Next you delete the Logical volume which will make it Unallocated so that Disk Mgmt can Extend C into it.
