Main OS and data is 4. 1-3 help startup. 5 and 6 are likely Dell recovery and so can go. Then you can expand 4 into that space.

But before you ever delete partitions, make sure you have a backup of all your data just in case things go bad.

Got it, thanks.
I have save all the data to OneDrive. I can always reinstall the application I had. Should I create a USB drive with Windows 10 just in case I have to reinstall windows?
