  1. Missing Bluetooth switch


    Recently i found that my Bluetooth toggle switch was missing from the devices area of Settings.

    I think it happened after the August Windows update.

    I cant revert to the previous update because it is more than 10 days ago. This is ridiculous

    :)

    Bluetooth on off switch missing.

    Good, reseating the dongle is usually a first step with connected devices.

    Thank you for your response.I suggest that you use the System File Checker tool to scan your system files and to repair missing or corrupted system files. The sfc/scannow command
    (System File Check) scans the integrity of all protected operating system files and replaces incorrect, corrupted, changed or damaged versions with the correct versions possible. You may refer to this link for
    more information.





    If the issue persists even after using System File Checker tool, please follow the steps below to run the DISM tool:




    • Press Windows key + X and select the Command Prompt (Admin).

    • In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, enter the following commands (Press the Enter key after each command):

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth




    • To close the Administrator: Command prompt window, type Exit, and press Enter.

    • Restart the machine.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.

    Bluetooth Toggle Missing from settings

    Hi, welcome to tenforums. Sorry to hear of your problem.

    The forum prompted you to give your full Windows build number so we don't have to keep asking... thanks.

    Please post screenshots similar to these:

    I assume you mean the Bluetooth option in the first is missing, and the bluetooth tile is missing.

    Example solved case (sounds similar): completely uninstall BT and reinstall:
    Bluetooth on off switch missing.

    Have a look at the driver in the Device Manager- has it just been updated (would be in Update History too - at the bottom).
    Consider rolling the driver back: e.g.
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...7-2bfe352778c4

    Consider using the driver specified by your manufacturer rather than the one provided by Windows, as suggested here:

    You can then prevent that driver being updated using the appropriate tutorial from the Tutorial section.

    You have given no details of your PC unfortunately.
