    Windows 10 Bluetooth management an file sharing is terrible.


    Hi,


    Why is sharing files over bluetooth so hard. My phone is paired, but when I send files I have to manually go into the windows device settings to hit receive files. this has been like this since windows XP I think.


    On a mac apparently you can juts use AirDrop. why can't windows have these features natively. I'm so tired of windows honestly. if my office at work didn't force me to use windows I would change in an instant.


    Still using usb cables in 2021 where phone manufactures are not even including cables in the box.

    :)

    Bluetooth in windows 10

    My computer specs are as listed in the profile. I think all of you guys are correct. I don't have built-in Bluetooth in mobo.

    I contacted skull candy headphones and thy have told me if I do not have built-in Bluetooth, I would need a dongle which supports at least a2dp. I do not know what the heck that means. I have a feeling I would need more than a cheap dongle.

    Anyone suggest some a2dp adapters. I searched but don't know what a2dp is so couldn't make a decision

    Bluetooth in windows 10

    So I bought a new Bluetooth headphones the skull candy uproar since my old one isn't working. It came with only the headset and usb charging cable. The problem is I can't seem to pair it to my pc. I have windows 10 by the way. There is no Bluetooth on off button in windows settings. I went to device manager but there us no icon for Bluetooth. I did everything I knew but none of it worked.I can post pictures if anyone needs.An alternative might be a Bluetooth dongle but I m not sure I'd it would work plus I paid $50 so don't wanna spend more

    I looked up on Internet and many people seem to have issues with windows 10 and Bluetooth. I thought of asking here knowing my UK friends are smart.

    Anyone have any idea of how to get Bluetooth to work on my pc.

    PS don't curse windows 10. I already know it's a mess and not a very good os.

    Windows 10 Bluetooth management an file sharing is terrible.

    Windows 7 File Sharing between computers, PROBLEMS!!

    Don't worry about homegroup. It's just an additional layer (of 'convienience') above 'old' classic Windows Shares mechanism.
    If your transfers are terrible with this setup, they will most probably be as terrible with any other approach.

    At first, focus on wired ethernet. Copying a file between HTPC and PC will show you transfer rate. Also... If you go to "task manager", you'll see network speed (network tab).
    Focus on wired ethernet for now... what speeds are you getting ?

    Cheers,
