How do I cycle through a tablet recovery options window without volume buttons?

My daughter's new Anoc DB10QC168 tablet will not move beyond the "Android" boot-up screen. It's just out the box and ran fine until I attempted to restart it after the first use (no attempt to root it). I can get it into recovery mode, but cannot scroll down to the factory reset as the only buttons available are the power and "Esc". I've tried the pin reset to no avail and each of the buttons simply bring up the Android robot with his chest open and an exclamation mark inside a red triangle. Please can you tell me how I should scroll through the menu? I've also tried connecting it to my laptop with the USB but it won't load any drivers etc. Thanks. There is no mention of the Anoc tablet and the answer to the question asked in the article only says you can do it using a computer but no instructions on how. I have tried: Pin reset, connecting to USB, attempted factory reset from recovery mode but cannot scroll as there are no volume buttons. I think it was caused by: Other than defective product I don't know. It was only a cheap device but it should not break on the first day.

My wife can't remember her password for a Dell tablet running Windows 8?

My wife has a Dell tablet running Windows 8. She can't remember her password so she can't use the tablet. I assume there is a way to work around this, but it is way beyond my level of computer sophistication. Your article appears to cover an Android tablet. This is running Windows 8. I have tried: Beyond trying to figure out the password, there is nothing we know to do. I think it was caused by: I could get in trouble with this. Password is forgotten.

I bought a Dell tablet and do know the password, I am unable to open it?

I bought the tablet at an auction "as is" from a company that went out of business, I am unable to use it or log in. The auction house said there is a button combination that does this. Dell will wipe it clean but it is very expensive, I could buy a new tablet once I pay for shipping, and the fee.
