The OS X Daily guide is only for resizing the OS X partition.  You can't resize the Windows BootCamp partition with that.

Apple officially tells you to back up the Windows data, delete the Bootcamp partition, create a new BootCamp, then recover the data.

The easiest way is to buy and use Paragon's CampTune.  https://www.paragon-software.com/home/camptune/  If you do this often, it's well worth the money for the simplicity.

There are free methods, but they require a bit more work.
