What happens after you buy?

  1. You will receive a confirmation email with directions on how to access your digital locker, usually in about 30 minutes – it will include your login ID and password.
  2. Login to "My Locker" with your login (email address) and password to view your order(s).
  3. Click download to put the software on your PC.
  4. Once you have downloaded the software to your PC, install the product. For products that require a software license key, type in the key during the installation (do not copy and paste).

What if I do not receive my email from the download team at Dell?

  • Check to see if the email is in your junk email or spam folder. Always be certain to add Download_Software@Dell.com as a contact so that you receive any future emails.
  • If you did not receive your confirmation email with directions on how to access your "My Locker" account, please send an inquiry via email to Download_Software@Dell.com. Include your email address, first and last name and date of your order. An application for financing or an issue with your payment may delay your order. We will process it as soon as those delays are resolved. Unfortunately, we are not able to help you with payment issues.
