Windows 10 - Disable Bitlocker

Bitlocker is a disk encryption added without your consent to your new computer making it hard to resize the Windows partition in Gparted.

To disable bitlocker do this:

Click Start
Type Powershell
Right-click, choose Run as administrator
Type Disable-Bitlocker -mountpoint "C:"

To get status type Get-Bitlocker-Volume -mountpoint "C:", status should say "FullyDecrypted"

Replace C: with the drive that is encrypted.

To check drives, type Win + R, type diskmgmt.msc and check if Bitlocker appears on the drives.
