can be done with risk

You can do this with a disk utility like PartitionMagic; however, YOU MUST BACKUP YOUR FILES because adding/removing/changing a partition always involves the risk of losing data on all partitions.

PartitionMagic ( is expensive. You could buy a 100+ GB hard drive for the price.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
