There's no official path to convert from NTFS to FAT32. Because NTFS possesses capabilities that FAT32 does not have, there's no guarantee that the contents of an NTFS volume can exist on FAT32.

Of course the NTFS volume could be reformatted as FAT32, (if it's larger than 32GB this would have to be done using third-party software), but the existing contents would need to be saved and copied back to the new FAT32 partition. Files that cannot exist on FAT32 could not be transferred back again, e,g, files 4GB or larger.

If you explain what circumstances prompted your question, we might be able to suggest some alternatives.
