    You don't really have to take any precautions first - this would be one of the safest operations to do, as long as you don't delete partition 2. It is always a good idea to have a backup image of your system created because you never know when something could happen to it, whether or not you are actually messing with the partitions.

    You would run the diskpart commands one by one, pressing enter key after each one. The command to run in a command prompt (admin) after all the diskpart commands would be:

    reagentc /setreimage /path \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition3\Recovery\WindowsRE
    reagentc /enable

    Its no trouble with mixing these two partitions ?
    I thought they have different formats ., NTFS and UEFI .......
    Will try, first new backup of the OS-partition, restart and will give it a try !
    Let you know if all goes well, or else ......Im dead ( dead OS , format etc.),will take some more time......

    You won't be mixing two partitions. You will be deleting a partition and then filling up the empty space.

    Just made some backups and did as you told in CMD, when I pressed enter after the extend-cmd , I got ; Virtual Disk Service error ; " the extension is smaller then the minimal size "
    Further no way, so I had to quit and did not make the reagentc , coz it did not do anything at all.............!
    What more can we do, maybe before restart , so not in Windows................?

    Well that is why the extend command failed, are you sure you ran the command to delete the extra recovery partition?

    diskpart
    select disk 0
    select part 3
    delete partition

    What happens at that point?

    Its "can not delete a protected partition if the parameter fo forced protecion not is set "..........it does not do anything,it seems to be blocked by security somehow.

    OK. So we have two choices. First choice is just to install and use MiniTool Partition Wizard Free. That would be the easy choice:
    Best Free Partition Manager for Windows | MiniTool Partition Free

    In MiniTool, just right click on the third partition (the recovery partition next to C: drive), select delete and apply. Then right click on the C: drive partition, select resize, and move the right border of the partition to fill the empty space and apply.

    The second choice - I am setting up a drive right now to look like yours so I can figure out how and show you how to do it in diskpart. I think I know, I just want to verify.
