Many peripheral devices also work on the basis of Bluetooth. That is why it is a must-have for every computer.

You can install & pair Bluetooth on Windows 10 even with the basic knowledge of computers. Stick till the end to know how you can install & pair Bluetooth on Windows 10.

Check If Your Computer Has Bluetooth

If you have a Windows PC, checking its Bluetooth availability is like a walk in the park. Some desktop computers may not have Bluetooth. In case you're not sure whether or not your desktop computer has Bluetooth, here are some quick and easy steps to take.

  • Right-click on the start bar and choose Device Manager

  • You will see a whole list of available device drivers. If your computer has a Bluetooth feature, you will see the Bluetooth icon.

  • If you own an old PC, check network adapters for any Bluetooth icon or driver; your laptop does not have Bluetooth connectivity if you can't find one.

The only exception is if you've reinstalled Windows from the start and haven't used Bluetooth after the new configurations. Due to this problem, your computer might have missed some drivers, and Bluetooth could be one of them. Another good option to check the Bluetooth availability is to read the owner's manual available on the manufacturer's website. If you have built your PC yourself, check the hardware details you used to confirm.

How To Install Bluetooth On Windows 10

How To Add Bluetooth To Windows 10:

If you find out that your computer lacks Bluetooth functionality, but it is necessary for you, you'll need to purchase some additional hardware. Bluetooth adapters are available as USB dongles or mPCIe network interface cards with antenna arrays. You can choose the one which fits your needs and is compatible with your computer and peripheral devices.

Because they can pull more electricity to bigger antenna arrays, Bluetooth mPCIe adapter cards typically provide a better signal and a longer duration. They'll work best on a computer. You don't always have the room or want the aerials hanging down if you're using a laptop or a compact PC. Thus a USB dongle might be preferable.

You can choose from a range of sizes and prices. Moreover, some hybrid adapters provide your computer with both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Here is how you can set up the adapter:

  • Plugin the adapter to your computer and run it
  • At the start screen. Your computer will automatically read the adapter and download the required drivers.

If you still can't see the Bluetooth option on your computer after plugging in the hardware, you must manually install the Bluetooth software. With the increased functionality and the speed of Bluetooth, it is a good idea to add Bluetooth to your computer for multiple uses.

How To Install Bluetooth Drivers In Windows 10:

Drivers are major elements of your computer. They allow performance by making a connection between your computer and hardware. Microsoft will not be able to support all types of the current hardware. You'll have to get and update drivers yourself most of the time to get the equipment to work.

If Bluetooth drivers are not already installed on your computer, the first step is to get them and correctly set up them on your laptop. This whole process is like a walk in a par. Just follow these steps: 

Step 1. Check Your System Details

According to the manufacturer and other details of a laptop model, the drivers are specially made. Therefore, you need to know the exact details of your laptop before going out to find a driver. Here is how you can check your computer details:

  • Execute the Run program by clicking on the Windows+R key
  • Type control in the command box and press enter

run control command

  • Now, click on System And Security < System. 
  • On the next screen, you will see the whole technical information of your laptop.

  • Pen down the details and start your hunt for a compatible driver

Step 2. Download The BlueTooth Driver

  • Open any web browser and search for the relevant driver for your PC with your details.
  • Click on the official provider of your relevant driver.

  • Scroll down and click on Download

  • Download and run the driver installation file.

Open the recently downloaded file and follow the prompts to activate the Bluetooth driver. Because each manufacturer's method is unique, we can't give a detailed step-by-step tutorial.

Conclusion

The whole tech industry is shifting towards wireless peripherals and input-output devices. This shift is only possible due to the availability of Bluetooth. Therefore, if your laptop does not have Bluetooth functionality, you miss a great deal.
