How can I convert primary partition to logical partition?

I am using Windows 10 and I partitioned hard disk into 4 separate partitions using disk management. The problem is that the new partitions created are all shown as primary partitions. So I want to convert primary partition to logical partition to get more logical partitions. How can I do it?

As we know, MBR disk only allows 4 primary partitions or 3 primary partitions plus 1 extend partition. That means if you have had 4 primary partitions on your MBR disk, you can’t create other new partitions. To break this limitation, you have to convert primary partition to logical partition. But it seems to be a difficult task as Disk Management or DiskPart built-in Windows 10 doesn’t support this function. No worries. This page will introduce you how to change primary partition to logical partition in Windows 10 with step-by-step guide.
