I tried Shrink D:Volumn and extend C:Volumn

Install a second drive. Partition it as extended, logical. Call it G:
Copy D: to G:. Rename D: to H: and G: to E:. Verify your new drive E
apps work. Delete the old drive D: partition. Extend C

That is, I beliece, because the shrink function operates at the end of a
volume (actually partition). But to increase a volume (partition!) size,
that space has to be available immediately after it.

So for you the only option is 3rd party software, like Acronis DiskDirector
or Easeus PartitionManager

I have used Easeus for that, and it has, so far, worked for me. I used to do
things like that with BootItNG when I was using Win98 and with WinXp up
until about ½year ago...
