Once you have started using the Dell Dock installed on your new Dell Computer, you will want to customize the icons that it displays. Storing icons on the Dell Dock provides a common place to locate the programs that you use with regularity, without cluttering your Desktop with icons that might get lost amidst other files that you have saved in that location.
Step 1: Right-click a program from your start menu, click “Send To,” then click “Desktop.”
Step 2: Click the icon on your Desktop, then drag it to the position on your Dell Dock where you want to display the icon. The spot in which the icon will be displayed will be indicated by a black separator line.
Step 3: Select what you want to do with the Desktop icon from the pop-up menu in the center of your screen.
