How do I factory reset a ThinkPad 8 tablet?

2020-12-03, 19:45 PM

I recently bought a used ThinkPad 8 tablet and am trying to factory reset it.  The previous owner cannot remember the password but said that I can feel free to wipe the device.  I can bring up the setup menu by holding power and volume up to turn on the device, but I can't find any option in those menus to reset the device. How can I factory reset the device?
