Hive box manipulation

I wintered over two hives in three 10 frame deep boxes. The top deeps on both hive are still full of honey, How would I go about getting them back to two deep configuration ? THANKS

Remove the box that doesn't have brood. If all 3 do, exchange frames until one doesn't. Freeze the frames you remove to kill wax moth eggs and larva, or treat them with bt if not full of honey.
Be sure to pick a nice warm day to do it too...
