If you don't plan on selling the computer then simply deleting the partitions during the install is sufficient.

This is a guide to a clean install of Windows 8 but will be similar for Windows 10. At step 9 click advanced and then delete all partitions as shown in the next steps. You may want to keep your factory restore partition if you have one. After deleting the partitions click Next.
