    There is a popular app called CCleaner that has a free space wiper.

    To sell it it's be better to reset to factory condition.
    Settings/Update and Security/Recovery then choose Reset this PC and choose remove all files when given the option.

    Unless you want to sell it with all you've installed still installed.

    I use this software to wipe my PCs before I get rid of/return them.
