Disk Management is a Windows system partition manager that can help users manage their disks and partitions. It can be applied to create new partitions, format drives, assign drive letters, or extend volumes. Below are six quick ways to open Disk Management in Windows 10:

  • Type Disk Management in the Taskbar's research box.
  • Press "Windows + X" and locate Disk Management in the menu.
  • Type run in the research box and input diskmgmt.msc in the Run dialog before hitting "Enter."
  • Go to "Control Panel" from the Start menu. Click "System and Security" > "Administrative Tools" > "Create and format hard disk partitions" to launch Disk Management.
  • Search and open Computer Management. You will find Disk Management under "Storage" from the left bar.
  • Type cmd and press "Enter," input diskmgmt, and press the Enter key again.

However, as a Windows system utility, Disk Management has many restrictions, including extending volume greyed out when there is no unallocated space behind the target partition and the inability to delete the recovery partition.

EaseUS Partition Master Professional is the best alternative that breaks all the restrictions and simplifies most operations, which makes it a handy disk/partition manager for starters.
