You will have to reduce the extended partition back to what it was in order for it to say primary partition. It doesn't change the drives function for it to be called an extended partition , that's just a description of the drive because you extened it. If you have the operating system on the exrended partition it is still considered the primary drive. If you have more then one hard drive in your computer then in disk management they will all say primary partition but that does not mean that they are the primary drive.

you can use third party software--Aomei Partition Assistant, but if you already have 3 primary and one extended partition structure, you could not convert it. So I wonder to know what you want to do.
