    3rd party tools do such jobs on rebooting. Yes, you can also use their boot medium, of course.

    A Powerful Software to Increase C Drive Partition in Win 10/8/7
    I'm surprised by this tutorial - as @dalchina says changing C needs to be done at boot outside of Windows (obviously as you are changing it) and for the last decade Partition Wizard has done this automatically. You describe the changes you want (while logged into Windows) and then it says you must reboot to do it which it then does. At this point it automatically boots to a PE environment to make the change. I've never had to create boot media.

    You could use boot media for sure but you don't have to - it seems to be just adding an extra complication (making a USB) for no benefit unless it was something you did daily for some reason. If that was the case saving partitions to an image and restoring would probably be easier/faster.

    Hi, that guide does say
    Step 4: You can preview the change and click Apply to increase C drive partition. After that, can shut down the software and restart your computer.
    - it doesn't explicitly say why or what will happen though.

    However, there are tools that are claimed to do this without a reboot:
