How to expand windows partition

HP Recommended
Notebook 15-dy1078nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP only see the Notebook 15-dy1078nr's hard drive has 3 partitions: EFI (260GB) , Windows (237.72 GB), and Recovery (487 GB). I can only use the Windows partition and I would like to expand it, but the Disk Management application doesn't allow me to do it. My account is an administrator's account

Your have to give room for it to expand by reducing space from other partition (next to it). In short


(a) Reduce/shrink space from other partition (must be next to it),

(b) Merge or expand Windows partition using un-allocated space,
