    Excellent tip. Thanks...

    Expand your keyboard – Since the Nexus 10 has such a large screen you may want to expand to a full-sized PC-style keyboard that includes number keys and extras like the screenshot above has. It’s tricky to set up, but worth it if you like to type in landscape mode. Go to Settings/Language & input and then touch the settings Sliders next to ‘Android keyboard.’ Next, touch ‘Advanced settings’ and touch ‘Custom input styles.’ It will say Deutsch and Francais, but you can ignore that. Touch ‘Add Style’ near the upper right. Then select your language and change the layout from QWERTY to ‘PC’ or one of the other styles. Now touch ‘Add’ and you’ll see your new style appear in the list. Touch ‘Enable’ and use the back key to go back to the Language & input screen. Now touch ‘Input languages’ near the top and uncheck ‘Use system language.’ Lastly, touch ‘English (US) (PC)’ and you’re done. Source: AndroidPIT

    Agree 'bout reading manual [not that is]-JUST HUMBLE OPINION-, thought a) one intent of 'forum. Personal note, t.b.I. - difficulty reading, b) sometimes hard to find correct terminology automated search, whereas 'friendly & knowledgeable' users can/should be able to interpret.

    The manual doesn't tell the user everything. I have had to do my own research on the NFC area at the back of the Google nexus 7.

    Hi---Wondering if anyone has had the following prob and found the fix.
    Just found that the start up login field has changed to a Alphanumerical keypad.
    My PIN is 3 x lowercase alpha and 4 x numerical. The keypad only accepts numerical and thus can not access the tablet.
    Two lengthy Skype discussions with a courteous but less than useful Google Geek in Texas!-- with the following suggestions which still hasn't resolved.;-

    Attempted to follow instructions to FDR--as initially advised. Still unable to open and follow FDR instructions.
    Next instructed to HR by simultaneously pressing power and volume buttons--Tried Hard Reset--Screen showed "Start field”, up/down arrows and two options “Restart Bootloader” and “Recovery Mode”
    Neither brought me to either FDR or HR---Ultimately returning to the alphanumerical keyboard again.
    Nor does applying the 30sec power press, produce anything other than the keyboard again

    Any proactive help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Erm...
    A pin can't have letters... It is by definition a number... PIN = Personal Identification Number (which is why the phrase pin number winds me up so much)

    It is possible the letter was converted to its equivalent number on a phone keypad (a/b/c = 2 etc) so you could try that

    Edit:
    If you don't know the number equivalent then (if you also have an android phone) go into the text message app on your phone, create a new message and type the alpha element of the code as the recipient, the Numeric equivalent will be below each letter as you type

    Google Play Music > Explore similar artists

    Not sure if this is necessarily a Nexus 7 tip, but I thought it was pretty cool.

    In the play store when browsing music, hit the "Explore similar artists" link and it opens a hyper-tree that lets you explore other artists related to what you're looking at.
