    Hi,

    With regard to the Bluetooth On/Off toggle, there are a couple of conditions that would cause it not to show up. Maybe your system is one of these:

    1. The system is not recognized as a mobile platform.

    2. The radio is a Bluetooth 3.0 or below version and the 3rd party software required to make it work is not installed.

    I hope this helps answer your Bluetooth questions.

    Thanks!

    Kristin

    I'v just been looking at the same thing. I right clicked on the icon and opened up the Bluetooth settings. In there is a radio button with on/off.

    How to turn Bluetooth Off in Windows 10?

    Open Control Panel, click on Device Manager

    OR

    Right click on the Windows logo AKA the start button, select Run
    Then type in devmgmt.msc and hit enter to open Device Manager

    Double click on your computer name (if it's not open already), double click on Bluetooth, right click on the Bluetooth Adapter then click Disable or Enable

    This way you can stop and start the Bluetooth Adapter from searching for devices at your convenience.

    If you have no use for it then go into the BIOS. Under "Peripheral Devices" and disable Blue Tooth there then Windows won't even see it.

    From what I can tell, it disables the bluetooth device rather than the chip. You need to set up your normal bluetooth device first. Once you have got the device paired, the setting will appear.

    The fastest way to then disable and re-enable that I can find at the moment is to:

    Double click on the bluetooth icon in the notification area on the taskbar

    Turn the selector on or off. I use this method a lot.

    If anyone knows of a faster method I would love to know. I use a pure Jongo system over Bluetooth but like to switch back to the internal speakers for movies/skype.

    There are videos on YouTube showing to turn the Bluetooth off using 'turn off' buttons in Bluetooth settings, but I have found none in my device (screenshot):

    How to turn Bluetooth Off in Windows 10?

    The Bluetooth device can just be ignored unless there are devices close by such as mice, keyboards, cellphones, etc., that can communicate to the computer [usually less than about 10 meters] or it can be disabled in Device Manager. It should be noted that Bluetooth on Notebooks is usually part of the Wi-Fi adapter, manually turning off Wi-Fi also turns off Bluetooth, I have 4 Notebooks that work that way, an HP, 2 Dells and a MacBook Pro. A Bluetooth dongle can be purchased for Desktops or if wishing to add it to a non-equipped Notebook.
