Expand guest disk on Vmware 6.5

A Window 7 guest on VMware 6.5 is running out of space. How to expand the disk size ?

Do I need to install vsphere web client for configuration ? I can open http to the vmware host. Can I configure the disk under this web interface ?

Thx

Do you have a snapshot  present, you cannot expand with a snapshot disk?

Is the disk IDE, because expansion is not supported?
