How do I know if my PC has bluetooth?

Hi,

I have a Bluetooth headset, I need to connect to my PC.

How do I find out if my PC has Bluetooth?

If it does, where can I find it?

Thanks,

Jessica

If it does, usually you will se the bluetooth icon in the system tray.  If you don't see the bluetooth icon in the system tray, then you can try typing
Change Bluetooth settings
in the Start menu search field.  If you can find this item, select it and make sure that the
"Show the Bluetooth icon in the notification area"
checkbox is checked.  If a search does not reveal this item, then the chances are that your machine does not have a bluetooth adapter.

You can also look in Device Manager.  If your machine has a bluetooth adapter, you should see a section labeled
"Bluetooth Radios"

To add to what carlos have said. You can also look at your device manager from the system properties or just type devmgmt.msc from the run.

If you have it,  it should have a catergory  call  something Bluetooth radio or something to do with Bluetooth.

Of course, if you have turn it on as well, else it will not show it there.

 

The best its to check your model of your computer to see if its listed.

 

Is there a desktop or laptop or model you know of?
