Problem Extending Partition

just recently started using dual boot and I greatly underestimated how much data Win7 needs to install so the size of my partition is on the small side. So I shrank the volume of my Win10 partition but when I go to mange it I can't extend the volume of the win7 partition to the unallocated space. Is there something wrong or is it not possible? In the picture the 55GB one is Win7

extending partition?
According to the help files the adjacent partition should allow me to be extended and absorb the partition next to it which is free space. See screenshot. Why does it not allow it?
