I've been using Mint 19 with Cinnamon. I deleted the Windows partition and was able to expand the Mint partition to fill the empty space. However, / is in the middle of the partition as Windows was before it. I presume I need to move / to the start of this disk, but of course I can't do that while it's mounted. Here's the output of sudo fdisk -l /dev/nvme0n1

Disk /dev/nvme0n1: 223.6 GiB, 240057409536 bytes, 468862128 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: gpt
Disk identifier: 4B8F64AD-5EBF-4BE8-B06E-F59BCC833C3C

Device           Start       End   Sectors  Size Type

    I solved it. For anyone else in the same situation I booted a live install and used gparted to fix it: Select the partition then from the Partition tab select check. – alex87 Apr 5 at 3:30
