Remove flash drive partition

My son recently got himself a 32GB flash drive.  He partitioned it with a 2GB NTFS partition and left the rest unallocated.  He went to remove the 2 GB partition and he can't.  I tried with the computer mgmt in Win 7 and I can't get it to go.  Is this too simple and I'm a dope?

Thanks,
jwhite

Either that or just replace the flash drive. They are very inexpensive.

Try Rufus https://rufus.akeo.ie/

Rufus is used for creating bootable USB flash drives but you don't have to select the boot option and it removes all partitions.
