Trust me, installing Ubuntu in dual-boot with Windows is not that difficult a task.
Similarily, removing Ubuntu from dual-boot is also not that complicated.
In this tutorial, I am going to show you, the steps for uninstalling Ubuntu
or any Linux distribution, for that matter, from a Windows dual-boot system.
This process is composed of 2 parts.
In the first part, you change the boot order and make Windows the default boot for your system.
And when that is successful, the second part is to remove the Linux partition.
Now that you know, let's see how to do it. Boot into your Windows system.
And, search for UEFI.
In here, under the 'Advance Startup Options', click on 'Restart Now'.
Your system will restart and will present you with some options. Go with 'Troubleshoot' here.
In troubleshoot, go with 'Advance options'. And then, you should see 'UEFI firmware' settings. Then, hit the 'Restart' button.
Now, your system will boot into UEFI settings. The next screen will look different for different system and manufactures.
All you have to do is to look for the boot settings, and you should see the boot priority order. In here, you can use arrow keys to select 'Windows Boot manager'
and then press F6 key to move it up the order.
So what you have to do is, to make sure that 'Windows Boot Manager' has the top priority. 'Save and Exit' using the F10 command.
Now your system will restart and boot directly into Windows without showing the grub screen of Linux. Just to make sure things are properly set,
try to restart your system a couple of times and make sure that it keeps on booting into Windows directly, without showing the grub screen.
When you have made that sure, the next step is to delete the Linux partition. Log into Windows and then look for 'Disk Management'.
In the Disk Management, you'll see all the disks and partition available on your system. Now you have to identify which is the Linux system here.
How do you identify that? You can see that the file system is either blank or maybe, an Ext4. And, you should also see the size of the partition.
When you have identified your Linux partition or partitions, right-click on them and opt for 'Delete Volume'. The deleted partition will now be available
as a chunk of free space. You can either extend the existing volume or create a new Windows partition from it. It's up to you.
You can create an F, G, H kind of drive there or you can just extend your C or D drive with this new free volume. That's really up to you.
And that's about it folks! You have deleted Linux from dualboot and you have got your disk space back. That was easy, right?
