In this tutorial, I will show you How to Check if your Computer has Bluetooth in Windows 10. Having Bluetooth on your computer can help you transfer files from your mobile devices to your computer and vice versa. If you’re using Windows 10, you will be able to use the built-in Bluetooth functionality to transfer files.
Most new computers today come equipped with Bluetooth hardware, but there are still computers out there that don’t have Bluetooth. To find out if your PC has Bluetooth, you can check the Device Manager.
To do so, click on the Windows Start button (bottom-left) of your screen; then choose Device Manager; and it will list down all the devices that your computer is equipped with. If your PC has built-in Bluetooth functionality, you will see it listed down.
If you don’t see it listed down, it means that your computer doesn’t have Bluetooth. However, all hope is not lost because you can get a USB Bluetooth Dongle that plugs into your USB port and makes your PC Bluetooth-compatible.
Check the links below to buy a USB Bluetooth Dongle from Amazon. Also, you can check my Window 10 Review as well as other tutorials on my YouTube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLcA1J1GDabdxhKO712I6uGeeJfTdPzmtZ
