Hard for me to read ... but ... it looks like from your screenshot that you already have four primary partitions assigned. IF that's true, and you're trying create another -- you can't. Four Primaries is the maximum number.

Also, from the same screenshot, it doesn't look like you have any unallocated space. It looks like your entire drive is allocated. Thus, there's no free space for you to extend a partition into.

I see only 3 primaries. But that does not matter in this case anyhow. You first have to shrink some unallocated space from C. Then you can add it to F. But with Disk Management you cannot do that. However, Partition Wizard can do it.
