hello i have switched lately from windows 10 to Fedora 28 and I am using it normally with no problems but I am not sure that I have removed the whole windows or not (I want only Fedora 28 on my laptop only ) , is there is a way to see the partitions on my laptop and make all of the harddrives for fedora only ?

Run the command lsblk from a terminal to get a sense of the current layout. There is also blivet and blivet-gui.

Ok first open command line terminal in fedora, type lsblk which shows all ur partition.if it just shows Linux partitions and file system.....then type- dnf update grub or just update your system by simply --- dnf update will update your grub also and the windows won't show up on system reboot ...but if there is windows partition just delete those partition first and follow the grub update.......

Hope it helps....

I already did the dnf update and I used the lsblk on the terminal and I got this result, is everything okey ? or I should I do anything else.

Yes. You can use a Live USB and gparted to do so. Just format all the Windows partitions and add it to the existing home partition (or whichever you choose -- try avoiding adding it to root).

Follow this guide for more instructions.
