How Can I Convert Primary Partition to Logical Partition

"I am using Windows 10, and I partitioned hard disk into four 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 four primary partitions or three primary partitions plus one extended partition. That means if you have had four primary partitions on your MBR disk, you can't create other new partitions. To break this limitation, you have to convert primary partition to a 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 the step-by-step guide.
