Make a Google Account

Before setting up the Android tablet for the first time, you will need to make a Google account, as the device will ask you to provide a Google account.

Get Past the Lock Screen

Tapping on the lock icon will make a different icon to appear. The icon will have a small circle inside a larger circle. The outer circle will show a lock icon inside it and to unlock the Android tablet, you just need to drag the icon to the outer part of the screen.

Know the Media Types

The Android operating system supports many of the standard media types, including WAV, MP3, and MIDI audio files, H.264 and MP4 video files, and GIF, JPEG, BMP, and PNG image formats. This means that if you have non-DRM protected media files, you will be able to copy them and play in your Android tablet without any issues.

Using the Tablet as a Storage Device

Connecting your Android tablets to a computer will offer you direct access to the file system of the tablet. This means that you can copy images, songs, and videos from the device to the PC or the other way around. This allows you to use the tablet as a USB mass storage device.
