    Welcome to UF
    It would depend on which partition you want to alter and where it is physically situated on your hard drive.
    Post a screenshot of your gparted screen and people will be more able to help you.

    Something always to consider is that you can't resize/alter and active partition. If you want to do something to a partition that you would normally be using with the OS you will need a bootable GParted or similar disc.
