Question: How do I remove windows from my Mac completely

I want to completely delete the windows software I installed on my mac. I don’t know how despite already searching on the internet. My Mac is a single partition. Please help. Here’s a photo of what’s in my disk utility:

Like I said in my original post, you don't have a BOOTCAMP partition, so no Windows 10 installed.


If you want to install Windows 10, you will need to use the Boot Camp Assistant utility in Applications > Utilities >


And create a new partition and install from scratch unless you have an image. You will need a Windows 10 iso to install fresh.

Well.... I actually don’t know what exactly happened. I tried to install windows, then when I got to the windows logo, there was an error stating that a problem occurred and the installation of windows couldn’t be continued. I retried a couple off times... problem still persists. So in the end, I switched back to Mac OS. Now.... I can’t even see where the windows disk is in the disk Utility. I don’t even know what happened to my 70GB of storage. I am planning into resetting the hard drive completely, but I can’t....

Launch Boot Camp Assistant from the Applications:Utilities folder. Check only the Install or remove Windows 7 option and click Continue. Choose Restore disk to a single Mac OS partition and click Continue. You will be asked to login with your Administrative username and password.

But for some weird reason, it only lets me install windows, not remove the application. Everytime i enter boot camp assistant (after restarting my Mac many times), it jumps straight away to the section where you can install windows. Here’s screenshots of what it looks like when I enter the boot camp assistant app.

If you want to wipe you drive and loose all of your data, I recommend an internet install.


hold

down option + command + r

continue hold keys until you see something on the screen

I suggest you make a genius appointment with an apple store. They should be able to sort out the problem. Or, ignore the whole issue.
