    1. Sorry for the inconvenience. It's "Shift Key". While pressing the shift key on the keyboard, using mouse you need to right click in the folder in blank area and select "open command prompt here". After that you can continue the process as said in the article.
      Few images are added to article for better understanding.
      If you any queries feel free to ask. I'm always happy to help.
      Thank You.

  25. After attempting factory hard reset as guided above my phone screen shows SET Up Wizard page. Gives option to choose language and then NEXT. When I press on NEXT, msg displayed is Unfortunately, Setup Wizard has stopped. Option Report/OK. When I press ok it goes back to Set up wizard page for language choosing. And when I press on REPORT, it shows Preview Crash Report and gives option to CANCEL only. Submit button dim and says No Internet connection available. Now if I cancel it takes me back to Set up wizard language page. Please guide me how to reset my phone. Thanks
