Why Need Move Partition in Windows 10

Hi guys, do you know how to move partition Windows 10? Why? According to some computer users' feedback, sometimes it can be really annoying when we have no way to move partition in Windows 10. But why we need to move a partition? 

To make full use of computer space while managing partitions. When your computer partitions go out of space, the computer running speed will slow down and the system will warn you with "low disk space" notice. To solve such a problem, the basic solution is to extend the partition or increase partition space. Other partition management tasks including merge, combine or increase partition size all need enough unallocated space. When there is not enough unallocated space right behind the to-be-managed partition, to move partition which is not allocated yet is exactly what you should do.
