How do you reset the Venue Pro 8?

I'm just too attached to my iPad.  Dell sales rep talked me into the tablet while I was purchasing a new Latitude E6530 laptop.  I've tried to use it for almost a month but have given up and am returning it.  How do I clear all my personal information; email, contacts, calender, etc?  I have the return authorization number but want to reset it to factory condition before sending it back.

Help!

Hi Danny,

I'm sorry to hear that your table isn't working out for you.

You can reset the device back to factory settings by going into the "PC Settings", you do this by swiping up and searching for settings. Select "Update And Recovery", then "Recovery", and lastly choose "Remove everything and reinstall Windows". Follow the prompts making sure to choose "Fully clean the drive". After the machine reboots you should be all set.

The tablet itself isn't anything great, but is works well as a tablet. It is underpowered for most serious business or gaming needs.

It is however a useful second computer, I just wish it had a video output port which would make it much more useful device.

Would be nice.  But just add a USB video out adapter cable, as second best?

I have tried to do this, but it tells me that some files are missing on mine. It say your windows installation or recovery media will provide these files. where is that at?

To update when I got home and got WiFi I was able to get reset to run but now it is saying missing files insert media same as the question above. Were do we get recovery media?
