Dell Digital Delivery
Software made easier
Dell Digital Delivery is an easy and new way to buy software when you purchase a PC. You can automatically download and install available software titles on select systems. All that it takes is an Internet connection and a few minutes — so you can enjoy the customization Dell stands for, without the wait, and get right back to work.
- Automatic installation — There is no need to manage login credentials, visit websites, wait for emails, find license information or use DVDs. Once you are connected to the Internet, Dell Digital Delivery does the rest.
- Restore capability — Whether you are reinstalling an application or doing a full system restoration, Dell Digital Delivery keeps track of your purchases and automates the process, so there's no need to find the right CD or DVD if you should need to reinstall in the future.
- Environmentally conscious — Dell Digital Delivery helps you reduce paper and plastic waste since most software has plenty of packaging but no longer includes printed manuals. Plus, you can avoid a trip to the store.
The Dell Digital Delivery application is preinstalled on most Dell systems. If you need to re-install the application, select your product from Drivers and Downloads. Select category "Application" to find the Dell/Alienware Digital Delivery Application.
