@f23948
If you erased everything you then only have LL, correct??
Assuming you now want to add Windows in the newly "shrunk" partition...

You'll want to use gparted  aka partition drives.
You can shrink from within -- Partition - Resize...

Now depending where you "boot" from EFI or BIOS it may get tricky with Windows no longer the 1st OS...
I haven't done, others may chime in with info for installing Windows as the 2nd or so on....
If you're shrinking for other Linux - you shouldnt have any issues....
except for /home if trying to use across multiple linux... if own partition and not under root....

We need more info to give proper advice, for example, a screenshot of gparted with the disk layout would be helpful, however, If you mean to shrink Lite's partition, as in where it s installed, AFAIK,  it's not possible. Launch gparted and take a screenshot of the disk's layout, then upload it to some image hosting service and share here. Also, read here:

https://superuser.com/questions/1547817/installing-windows-10-as-secondary-os-on-gpt-disk-in-uefi-mode

The safer bet is to install Windows first, then Linux. You could clone Lite's partition https://clonezilla.org/downloads.php and restore your current system after installing Windows.
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)
