need to remove snapshots in order to be able to edit disk to compact disk

How do I remove the snapshots on a hyper-v. Can not edit the disk because- Edit is not available because checkpoints exist for this virtual machine.

I was able to remove the snapshots so I the edit button is now available to compact the virtual hard disk.
Will the compact disk gain me hard drive space?

Yes, it will but not as much as you expect from it :)
