How to extend Windows 8 partition easily?

Windows 8 is another new type of computer operating system released by Microsoft after Windows 7. It is Microsoft's multiple-platform operating system that could used in tablet, laptop, PC and smartphone, used to compete with Mac operating system and Google's Android. Besides the Microsoft's traditional Windows interface, Windows 8 is also fitted out with tablet design suited to touch screen, which adopts dynamic tiles similar to Windows 7 and new features and functions like that users can purchase software on Windows Store. But regrettably, the built-in disk management tool in Windows 8 has not changed much, so it can not help Windows 8 users to realize ideal Windows 8 disk management operations.




The above picture is the main interface of Windows 8 disk management tool, from which we can see the faults of the tool. It has few functions and they are not perfect. Take Extend Volume function for example. It can be used only if there is unallocated space next to the partition that will be extended, or we can not extend partition. Hence, if users want to manage Windows 8 disk well, the third-party Windows 8 partition magic is desperately needed. But it is a little difficult to perform Windows 8 disk management tasks with the third-party partition magic because the new operating system may have serious compatibility problem. However, we can use the partition magic – MiniTool Partition Wizard which is developed by the celebrated software development company MiniTool Solution Ltd. to manage Windows 8 disk.
