    First: Create a 3rd party disk image of what you have now, so if anything goes wrong.. the routine and regular use of disk imaging is endlessly recommended here.

    Use a 3rd party partition manager e.g. Minitool Partition Wizard.
    Delete the 1st partition.
    Move the other partition(s) to the left of 'C:' to the 'left'.
    (There should be a small one not shown in Disk Management).
    Then you can extend C: (leftwards) into unallocated space.

    You will see the layout on the GUI- nothing actually changes until you click 'Apply'. The change will take some time.

    Minitool Partition Wizard has helpful videos immediately available.
    You can find more videos on Youtube.

    Note: you seem to be missing a Recovery partition.

    Your drive doesn't have the usual partitions order or size. Please tel us a little story of this installation.

    As you have a EFI partition I would say that your drive is a UEFI-GPT.
    So you probably have
    - Unallocated - 2G
    - EFI - 400M (very big)
    - MRR - 16M (not shown)
    - C: - 929G

    As the Unallocated is on the far left and also the EFI is huge (normally it is 100M) this is what I would do:
    - Create a disk image of the drive on an external drive
    - Boot from the image creator rescue drive and clean the above drive.
    - From the drive image created, drag and drop the partitions in this order:
    - EFI - Resize to 100M
    - MSR - 16M
    - C: - resize to max

    What program you use for disk image creator?
    As Dalchina already noticed, why it hasn't have a Recovery partition?
