Check each of the drives to see if they may be a memory card (like an SD card or thumb drive) and what is stored on them.
Write down a list of the one's you do not want.
Go into your 'Administrative tools' and select 'computer management' then 'Disk Management.'
At the bottom, find the partitions/volumes with the drive letters you do not want, right click and delete them.
If they are on the same disk as another volume (like C Drive) you can extend that volume to use that extra space.

I have a single SSD installed in my Laptop so device manager only shows ssd drive the partitions you see in Explorer are the partitions of my external hdd which when removed from laptop leaves the partitions as you can see in picture
7 partitions means i have attached and de-attached the external drive 7 times

you can see this image for the details of drives and drive letters shown in explorer & device manager
