After you’ve finished removing all of the unwanted programs, icons and settings from your new Dell computer, you might realize that you have inadvertently removed a feature that you really liked, such as the Dell Dock. This is an easy mistake to make, particularly because you can get over-zealous when consecutively uninstalling a lot of programs. However, because you installed and uninstalled so many programs within such a short amount of time, performing a system restore is probably an unrealistic option. Additionally, system restores can take a while and reinstalling the Dell Dock is a pretty painless process.
Step 1: Open a Web browser window, then navigate to the Dell Dock download page.
Step 2: Click the blue “Download” link at the center of the window.
Step 3: Click the “Reinstalling on a Dell Computer” option, then click the blue “Download” button.
Step 4: Save the file to your computer, then double-click the downloaded file.
Step 5: Follow the prompts to complete the installation. restart your computer if you are prompted to do so. The Dell Dock will be displayed on your Desktop once the computer restarts.
