Default Dell computer with no input

Dell computer with no input capability!
My wife just bought a New Dell "all in one" computer.
But the thing is bizarre. It has no DVD drive,
nor place to install one. It has one USB port ---
but the computer does not recognize anything plugged
into the USB slot !
Further more, it has Windows 10 installed which
doesn't have "Control Panel (at least none I could find)
So how do we do anything? We can access internet sites
It doesn't even have Internet Explorer!
So what to do with the thing?


A cursory look shows that Dell does offer both AMD and Intel all-in-ones
with no DVD drive, but they have at least 4 USB ports.

Provide the model number to this news group:

alt.sys.pc-clone.dell

Windows 10 does have a Control Panel, and Internet Explorer.

Control Panel is he
StartWindows SystemControlPanel
From here, you could right click and Pin to Start, or righ clickMorePin
to taskbar
or
Type "Control Panel" into the Cortana orb

Internet Explorer is he
StartWindows AccessoriesInternet Explorer
From here, you could right click and Pin to Start, or righ clickMorePin
to taskbar

or
Type "Internet Explorer" in the Cortana orb

At the current time, "control.exe" when executed, will bring
up the Control Panel. If you right-click the Start Orb, there is
a Run box, and you can enter it there. The advantage of this
on a "slow slow" platform, is the Control Panel will start
faster without the Cortana Ceremony.

You can also vector to the control panel you want, by passing
a parameter to control.exe on the command line.

I'm using external DVD drives anyway, when the
original one wears out in whatever failure mode
that usually is. Increasing error rates, failing
to launch.

It does require the USB port be working though.
