Go into your Utilities folder and find Boot Camp Assistant.

Double Click it and continue to "Download Windows Support Software".

Click "I Have Already Downloaded the Windows Support Software....". This opens the select task window.

Select "Create or Remove a Windows Partition," then click continue.

Hit the "Restore Disk to a Single Volume".

Boom goes the dynamite. That should do it.
