How do I convert Logical Drive to Primary Partition?

Hi, I partitioned my hard drive and created a new simple volume but it has appeared as a logical drive. Why is this? I want to convert it back to primary partition so I can add the space back to my main drive. How do I do this?

Windows will normally create a logical partition for the 4th drive due to a limitation on the number of primary drives.

It looks like you have nothing on the logical drive F, so you should be able to just delete it in Disk Management.

That space will then become "unallocated space" and you could then extend D to take up that space.

If you want to add that space to C rather than D, you will need a third party tool such as Partition Wizard.
