    Unable to Send or Receive a file using Bluetooth in Windows 10

    Hello,

    To send or receive a file using Bluetooth, the receiving device must select “Receive a File” to wait for a connection.
    On the receiving device, click on the Bluetooth icon in the notification area (the bottom corner of the taskbar), and select
    Receive a File.

    Then from the sending device, you can right-click the Bluetooth icon and select
    Send a file, and follow the instructions on the screen.

    If you don’t see the Bluetooth icon, you can enable the icon by going to
    Settings >
    Devices > Bluetooth > More Bluetooth options.
    In the Options tab, make sure the Show the Bluetooth icon in the notification
    area is enabled.

    Also, make sure both devices have all options enabled in the
    Options tab under Settings > Devices >
    Bluetooth > More Bluetooth options.
    And then check the Share tab, and make sure Allow remote devices to browse, send, and receive pictures, music, and other files is enabled.

    If the issue persists, please reply back to this thread.
    In order for us to best understand how to resolve your problem, please make sure to provide:

    Interface for Bluetooth on my laptop does not have "Share" tab at all. What should I do to have it appear?

    Sharing and receiving files over Bluetooth is a little different on Windows 10.




    • To send or receive a file using Bluetooth, the receiving device must ready to accept the file. Simply go to
      Settings > Devices >
      Bluetooth
      > Send or receive files via Bluetooth, and follow the instructions on the screen. Alternatively you can select “Receive a File” to wait for a connection. On the receiving
      device, click on the Bluetooth icon in the notification area (the bottom corner of the taskbar), and select
      Receive a File.

    • Then from the sending device, you can right-click on the file itself and select
      Send to > Bluetooth Device, and follow the instructions on the screen. If the sending device is a Windows phone you simply choose the file and select
      Share > Bluetooth and select the name of the receiving device. Remember if it’s a Windows 10 PC you will need to make sure it’s set to receive per above.


    If you still have problems please give us feedback in the new Feedback Hub under, Hardware, Devices, and Drivers > Bluetooth – File Sharing.



    Thanks!
