I have installed Ubuntu 15.04 and it's my first time I am using Ubuntu. I installed it using 50 GB space first because I had Windows 7 installed previously and thought that i will make it duel boot but due to OEM BIOS restriction I could not do that and lost Windows 7 now. I formatted the drive on which Windows 7 was there. Now I have this space left and I want to use that 220 GB unallocated space and merge in swap and extended partitions. I have Gparted installed.

I am not aware of it how to do it. Please suggest. Step by step guidance will be very much appreciated.

Try to get use to command line. Take advantage and explore fdisk command. You need to use sudo for this.

Or

I suggest the application gparted. You may have to install it from the Ubuntu repository or Software Center. It will give you user friendly interface that will make things easy for you.

Note- If any of the partitions that you want to merge is in use, you will have to do it from live DVD/USB using GParted
