Dell Dock Overview

Dell Dock enables you to quickly and easily access key software applications, short-cuts, web-links and personal files via "drawers" for key categories. The drawers are dynamic and customizable to better meet your specific needs.

The Dell Dock is somewhat transparent so it will work well with whatever desktop pattern you choose.

There are two sections to the Dell Dock separated by a visual divider.

To the left of the divider is the Categories section that contains the drawers that open when you click them. Some examples of drawers are:

  • E-mail and Chat
  • Internet
  • Photos
  • Music
  • Video
  • Security
  • Help and Support

To the right of the divider is the Quick Launch section used to launch applications with a single click. The recycle bin is in this section of the dock. The Dell Dock is seen below (Figure 1).
