I have a Pixel 6 with a cracked screen (no display whatsoever) that I am trading in, so I'd like to wipe it. But, with the broken screen, I can't access the recovery menu and Find My Device can't reach the device to do a remote wipe.

Any other way to wipe it (via PC or something)?

You can try a USB-C to HDMI output to have the display on something other than the device.
