  1. Bluetooth connection trouble

    I am unable to connect Bluetooth headphones. When attempting - I do not see a place where I am able to turn on/off Bluetooth. When I do go to Bluetooth and other devices and click add Bluetooth or other device - it will not connect my headphones. I am unsure if Bluetooth is even turned on or how to do so.

  2. Trouble Connecting To Bluetooth Device


    Thank you for updating us with the issue.

    I would suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the Bluetooth drivers.

    Follow these steps to uninstall and reinstall the driver:

    Step 1: Steps to uninstall the device:

    • Press Windows key
      + R to open Run.

    • Type devmgmt.msc and press

    • Locate Bluetooth Device.

    • Right click on the device and select

    • Also place a check mark beside the option
      “delete driver files for the device”.

    • Restart the computer
    Windows should automatically try to find and install the appropriate driver on restart. In case if it fails to install the driver automatically. If that didn’t work try step 2.

    Step 2: Update Driver Software from the Manufacturer’s website:

    Go to the manufacture website and search for the latest Bluetooth drivers compatible with Windows 10 available for the device model and then install.

    Hope the information helps. If you have any queries related to Windows. Feel free to post. We are here to help you.

    troubles with my Realtek WLAN/BlueTooth adapter

    "Anyone any idea how to install the drivers mentioned above? As Windows Update does not 'see' them."
    It does not see them because that is your list of hidden updates. You can simply check the ones you want to go thru and the next Windows Update will see them but auto install, so be careful if you don't actually want them.

    "I am having troubles with my Realtek WLAN/BlueTooth adapter, so I would like to try a driver update."
    Best thing to do and not screw up the list of Hidden Updates you already have, is go to Device Manager (Win+X), expand Bluetooth to see installed drivers. Then r-click the driver/Update Driver Software/Search automatically ... If there is a newer one, it will auto install. Test, if not happy roll back by doing same steps except click Properties and use roll back option. Good Luck
