Olha amigo,

If /dev/sda6 is where your root partition is located, and you currently booted that system, it's not a good idea to a live-resize. You need to boot a live image, then resize your partitions while they are offline.

Moreover, GParted, as far as I know, is not very good at dealing with LVM2 volumes. You may want to try blivet-gui from Fedora repositories - but also with an offline filesystem.

I don't know just what you're trying to do, but from what your first image shows your entire /dev/sda6 is in use except for tiny bits of space left between the partitions for technical reasons. Currently, your main partition is almost 464 GB in size. If that's not enough for you, your best bet is to install a second drive and use it for whatever data won't currently fit.

I need to resize this partition to create a dual boot fedora os and win 10.

Already I researched enough but I have no notion of how to do

Start a Fedora Live System, start the program called Blivet-Gui (blivet-gui) and then resize on of the partitions in your LVM2 volume, and then the LVM2 volume itself.

If you search ask.fedora, you will find the same question with answers several times..
