    Switch user tab at bottom left is not there and I cannot log in


    I am trying to reset a Dell Venue 10 tablet for a high school I work at. We cannot log in to the account to reset that way nor does the sticky keys workaround work. I need to switch user to log in to my admin account but there is no option for that.

    Here is a similar thread but no one gave him the answer he needs besides reset. That is not an option either.

    If you just want to factory reset a tablet, boot with your Windows installation DVD, click "Repair your computer". Browse to Troubleshoot -> Reset this PC. The whole process doesn't ask you for your old password.
