Do you have Bluetooth on your PC

Bluetooth is a standard feature on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices as well as tablets. The OS these devices run on may be different but the Bluetooth technology is pretty much the same. The devices can communicate with each other and you can connect a phone or tablet to a computer, or use Bluetooth to send files and connect connections such as keyboards or headphones.

Do you have Bluetooth on your PC?

Bluetooth can be turned on or off on a device. The same is true for PCs. If you can’t repair Bluetooth devices, and you’re wondering if you have Bluetooth on your PC, there’s a simple way to check.

Check Bluetooth on PC

To check Bluetooth on a Windows 10 PC, use one of the following methods.

Method 1 – System folder

Check the system tray and see if you can see a Bluetooth image. Click the overflow button to see if the image exists. If so, you have Bluetooth on your system.

Method 2 – options app

If you have Bluetooth on your PC, you will be able to turn it on or off from the Settings app.

  1. Open the Settings app with the keyboard shortcut Win + I.
  2. Go to Devices> Bluetooth.
  3. Check if there is a version to turn on Bluetooth On.

Method 3 – Device Manager

Bluetooth appears as a group of devices on your system in Device Manager.

  1. Open Device Manager.
  2. Look for Bluetooth in the tree of device groups.

Turn on Bluetooth

If you do not see Bluetooth on your system using any of the above systems, it is possible that Bluetooth is present but has been turned off by the BIOS. This tends to happen on Dell systems but can also happen on systems from other manufacturers.

  1. Restart your computer.
  2. Boot to BIOS before Windows 10 picks up.
  3. In the BIOS, look for hardware configuration options.
  4. If Bluetooth is listed there, turn it on.
  5. Reboot the system and boot to Windows 10.
  6. Open Device Manager.
  7. Click the Scan button for hardware changes.
  8. Windows 10 detects and installs Bluetooth drivers.

Install Bluetooth drivers manually

It is possible that Bluetooth is turned on, on your system but Windows 10 has never installed drivers for it. You can install them manually.

  1. Visit the website for your laptop / desktop maker.
  2. Enter the model number of your device.
  3. Download the Bluetooth driver.
  4. Run the file and Bluetooth drivers will be installed.
  5. Restart the system.
  6. Open the Settings app with the keyboard shortcut Win + I.
  7. Go to Devices> Bluetooth.
  8. Turn on Bluetooth.


It’s hard to find a laptop or desktop that doesn’t have Bluetooth. If you are unsure of your system, the above checks will confirm its presence. Often, problems with Bluetooth missing on a system need to be related to drivers not being installed.
