Software and settings most commonly used at Brown are pre-installed. Please view the Dell Image Contents for details about your new Dell computer.

The windows setup program which runs when you first start your new computer has been customized to assist you to properly configure your computer for use at Brown. The on-screen instructions guide you through this customized Brown setup. Proper setup is essential to secure your system for use on the Brown campus network and enable some services that are available to you as a Brown faculty or staff member.
