Hard Drive Partitions not combining

Hi everyone, first time posting here :)

I am having a little trouble with windows disk management. I'm running a custom built rig with a 250GB SSD for OS & Programs, and a 2TB HDD for everything else. The hard drive was previously partitioned however I recently removed these partitions and Extended the main volume to fill the drive, however it is showing up as 3 distinct volumes in disk management (See attached screenshot). They're also Green from some reason and the disk is showing as a 'Dynamic' disk, which I don't remember changing.

Any help why these partitions won't merge into one?

Cheers,
Matt

topgun's suggestion is probably the easiest but if you want to do it manually you would have to get all the data off of that disk then work right to left:
right click-delete volume,
middle: extend volume then delete volume,
last partition: extend volume then delete volume, (should become a basic disk)
then create a new simple volume.

Trial Edition? I used to use the Partition Master Free Edition and it works fine converting dynamic disk to basic. Have no idea if newer version was already changed though.
