The majority of mobile gadgets now include Bluetooth. Bluetooth is present on any reasonably current Windows 10 laptop. Bluetooth may or may not be integrated into your desktop PC, but you may always add it if you so choose. Assuming Bluetooth is available on your PC, here’s how to turn it on and configure it so you can use your speakers, mice, keyboards, headsets, trackers, and other devices.

How to Turn on Bluetooth on Windows 10

Bluetooth must be enabled in order for a device to be connected to a computer. To accomplish this, launch the Settings application by pressing Win+I and clicking the “Devices” category.

Alternately, you can rapidly enable or disable Bluetooth by launching the Action Center (press Win+A or click the Action Center icon in the system tray). Bluetooth can be enabled from the Quick Actions panel. Depending on how your system is configured, the location of the Bluetooth icon may differ from system to system.

How to Download Bluetooth Drivers for Windows 10

Downloading a Bluetooth driver for Windows 10 is typically unnecessary; Windows 10 should take care of everything automatically. If something goes wrong and Windows fails to retrieve the correct Bluetooth driver, or Bluetooth doesn’t function properly, installing drivers manually may resolve the problem. Always download drivers from official, trustworthy sources, unless you have no other choice.

If you have a laptop and a pre-built desktop, you should visit the manufacturer’s website to download the appropriate drivers. Manufacturers have pages where you may download all of your PC’s drivers; they may even have software that identifies the essential drivers, so you don’t have to manually search for them.

If you constructed your own PC, you must get the drivers from the website of the hardware manufacturer. If your motherboard supports built-in Bluetooth connectivity, you can download the necessary drivers from the manufacturer’s website. If you are using a dedicated wireless card with Bluetooth or a USB Bluetooth adapter, the Bluetooth drivers can be downloaded from the manufacturer’s website.

Pairing a Bluetooth Device

Select your Bluetooth device from the list.

Now that Bluetooth is enabled, activate the device you wish to pair and place it in Pairing Mode or Discovery Mode.

The device should appear in the Settings window’s list of additional devices on your computer. Click the device and then click “Pair.”

Depending on the sort of device you’re connecting, a confirmation popup may appear on both devices, requesting that you confirm pairing. This window appeared when I was linking my phone to my PC, blocking anyone from connecting to your computer. Confirm that the PIN is the same, and then click “Yes.”
