To delete a partition, select or highlight the partition and then click Delete from the upper menu. Please be careful when doing this. Wrong partition you delete, you will lose your partition and all data in it.
Click OK to confirm the deletion. In a moment, your disk layout will be updated. In my case, now I have one Unallocated partition on my Disk 2.
