    Hello, Linux members.
    When I was installing Ubuntu onto my Windows 11 laptop using a USB drive it somehow caused the OS to become a complete part of my system. Some of my memory was partitioned and it wasn’t in the virtual environment like it was supposed to. After some deep diving, I was able to remove Ubuntu as a dual-boot to my system safely but I knew that I hadn’t completely eradicated the contamination of the Ubuntu installation.

    It still looks like there is memory saved to the side for Ubuntu and I don't know how to regain it. Is there another step that I would have to take to get back some of that memory?

    You need to delete the partions from ubuntu and then resize the Windows partition to use the free space again. You can do this with the diskmgmt.msc utility
