Windows 10: Can't Pin Bluetooth Settings

Discus and support Can't Pin Bluetooth Settings in Windows 10 Customization to solve the problem; Discussion in 'Windows 10 Customization' started by Smart Manoj, Sep 23, 2020.

  1. Fault trying to share photos from phone to laptop via Bluetooth

    While waiting for replies I solved this - in Windows 10 by the following steps where -> means click/select.
    1. Start -> Settings-> Devices -> Bluetooth.
    2. At this point ensure Bluetooth is on and device you wish to make the transfer from is listed and paired.
    3. At the bottom of the same page under Related Settings -> Send or receive files via Bluetooth -> Receive files.
    4. The Waiting for connection page appears stay on this page and initiate the transfer from your device.
    5. The file is being received window appears with a progress bar when this is complete you will be asked where to save the file and Finish
    It appears these steps have to be performed for each individual file transferred therefore I've pinned the Settings window with Bluetooth selected to the task bar.

    Can't get Bluetooth working...

    If your sure that its recognised properly then have a look on this links page

    The only thing i can think of to fix if it isnt recognised by linux is the following:

    Firstly you have to find out what chipset your bluetooth dongle uses.
    Secondly i think your going to have to basically compile your own kernel and include the module for the chipset that your bluetooth dongle uses.
    Thirdly depending on if you add it to the kernel or as like built in you will have to add the name of the module to a config file which is used when you boot linux.

    If the kernel doesnt have support for your bluetooth dongle then you can either try and find a different copy of the kernel which does or try and find the driver for it.

    To recompile your own kernel however requires a whole guide itself , plus different linux distro's will have different kernels with different options and slightly different config files.

    Only thing i can suggest is going to and reading through their handbook, its basically step by step setting up linux manually, in the handbook there is a page or two on recompiling your kernel for your particular configuration.

    Can't Pin Bluetooth Settings

    Cannot set up PIN after Creators Update

    In this case, we recommend to repair and set up a new PIN by doing the following steps:

    • Open File Explorer and browser to this location:

    • Delete everything within that folder. You must be logged in as the Administrator to do this.
    • Go to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in Options.
    • Click Add a PIN again and set your PIN.
    • PIN sign in should work moving forward.

    Let us know if the steps above works.
