Dell Wireless Keyboard Software


Dell Wireless Keyboard Software is a software program developed by Dell. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The primary executable is named indicatorosd.exe. The setup package generally installs about 6 files and is usually about 1.35 MB (1,419,149 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 8 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 75% of users of Dell Wireless Keyboard Software come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and France.
