you can't extend a partition if the OS is booted as far as i know. 

 

boot into a linux usb drive, go into gparted and from there resize the partition.

So I've finally did it (just got home) and the grub launcher was removed.... in bios I can boot straight to ubuntu or windows by setting disk priority but that's gonna be a pain to do everytime I wanna get on something...

 

Can you help with the grub?

Or I can delete the partition of linux since I only have like 3 things on linux (that's why I was extending it so I can get more stuff on linux) and reinstall
