  1. As you can see from the screenshot, somehow I have acquired a partition of unallocated space of approx 195 GB...I want to delete this partition, adding the extra GB to my main, OS:C partition, but I cannot figure out how to do it...Can someone help? Thanks a lot,

    It is already deleted, that is why you can't.

    What you can do is grow your C partition into that space (forget whether it is called merge or grow or expand).

    I can't believe an OEM would setup that many partitions.
    1. System partition
    2. OEM partition
    3. not 1 but 2 partitions for System Recovery
    4. OS partition
    Completely ridiculous!

    However to stay on topic, @SNGX1275 is correct. Select the OS partition and stretch across the unallocated space.

    Type "cmd" into the search box and press: CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER
    Answer "YES" to the UAC elevation prompt.

    Type:
    Diskpart
    select volume C
    extend

    Wait for it to complete :)
    Then type exit to exit diskpart
    And exit again to exit the command prompt
