I see so many different methods when I search it up and I have no idea what the right one is

I want to completely wipe my ssd (it's my main drive I have windows on, I have 1 other usb stick)

Just use if like I am now (reinstall windows etc), so basically I want to turn it to when I bought it brand new I guess.
If you're going to reinstall Windows on it, you can delete all the existing partitions during the install.

Section II, Step 6 & 7 speaks to doing that.
