How do I reset my Android Tablet password or Factory Reset it?

I set a "word" password on my Tablet and can not remember it. There is not any "forgot password?" option available. I have tried factory resetting but it didn't work. It's possible I may have done it wrong, all of the results I looked up were different. Now I can not figure it out.

All Android mobile devices run more or less the same. If you are having difficulties with a Factory Reset on a Google Tablet, or a Samsung Tablet, you can follow steps to Factory Reset your Android Tablet or mobile device by reading our main guide. Just keep in mind that there can be differences in switches and other buttons on a given device, and this can complicate the Factory Reset options.

I got a pop up to enter my password to decrypt storage, how do I reset it?

A password was never set up and I have tried master reset by holding down the power button and the volume key but the droid doesn't come up to give me the option to wipe the tablet. I have tried: Holding down the power but with the volume up.. and volume down and the center of the volume keys and still don't get the droid man to come up. I think it was caused by: Kids were playing with it and got the pop up for decrypt storage
