So I previously used dual-boot and had windows and linux running but decided to switch to only Linux (elementary OS). The unallocated space was from deleting the partition for my windows. I am now having trouble to resize my /dev/sda5 partition. I am trying to completely allocate the 88.51GB to my /dev/sda5 partition.

You can't change the partition you're currently using.

Try resizing the partition using a live USB.
