Windows 10 Bluetooth Driver Issues SOLVED

How to update Windows 10 Bluetooth driver

Here are 3 ways you can update your Bluetooth driver in Windows 10:

Option 1: Update Bluetooth driver automatically (Recommended) 

Driver Easywill automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing. Driver Easy handles it all.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):

2) Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.  

3) Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of ALL the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).

You can also click Update to do it for free if you like, but it’s partly manual.

4) Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

Option 2: Update Bluetooth driver via Device Manager

Device Manager is surely a quick way to update our Bluetooth driver since our Windows system automatically detects what Bluetooth driver we’re using and helps us find one available. But there’s one niggle: it doesn’t necessarily have the latest version available. Still, let’s give it a go:

  1. On your keyboard, pressthe Windows logo key andRat the same time, then copy & paste devmgmt.msc into the box and clickOK.
  2.  Locate and double-click on Bluetooth. And you can see the manufacturer from the name of your Bluetooth (in my case, Bluetooth).
  3.  Right-click on the Bluetooth and click Update driver. 
  4. Click Search automatically for updated driver software. 
  5. Your Windows will try its best to find the latest Bluetooth driver available for your computer. Then wait a bit and see if you’re provided with a driver update:
    • If yes, follow the on-screen instructions, skip step 6 and restart your computer to finish the update process.
    • If no, proceed with step 6).
  6. You see the following result.

    The message isn’t always true since Windows can be slow in keeping up with manufacturer’s driver releases. You might have to check out other methods to have the latest driver installed.

Option 3: Update Bluetooth driver manually

Downloading the wrong driver or installing it incorrectly can compromise our PC’s stability and even cause the whole system to crash. So please proceed at your own peril.

Steps 1-2 are to figure out what Bluetooth your computer is using. If you already know, start with Step 3.

  1. On your keyboard, pressthe Windows logo key andRat the same time, then copy & paste devmgmt.msc into the box and clickOK.
  2.  Locate and double-click on Bluetooth and you can see the manufacturer from the name of your Bluetooth (in my case, Bluetooth).
  3. Go to the manufacturer’s website, check out the Support section for driver downloads.
  4. Find out and click the right download link for your variant of Windows operating system. Usually a few download options will be listed but you might want to click the firstresult for the latest driver version.
  5. Double-click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to finish the install.
  6. Restart your computer for changes to take effect. 

That’s it – 3 methods to update your Windows 10 Bluetooth driver. Hope this helps and feel free to comment below if you have any further questions.

Поиск доступных устройств Bluetooth

Для того чтобы найти какие-либо подключения, к примеру, телефон или мышку, поддерживающую такую технологию подключения, нам потребуется вернуться в меню «Изменение параметров компьютера». Только на этот раз нас интересует пункт «Компьютер и устройства». В появившемся окне можно включать и выключать модуль. Кроме этого, система автоматически выполняет поиск доступных подключений.

После этого компьютер предложит вам список, из которого просто выберите нужный аппарат. Дальше следуйте подсказкам на экране. Стоит отметить, что на подключаемом устройстве также должен быть включен Bluetooth. Если речь идет о смартфоне, то помимо самого модуля еще необходимо включить «Обнаружение».

Что делать, если вы выполнили все вышеуказанные действия, а адаптер не заработал? Это говорит о том, что на компьютере не установлены соответствующие драйвера.

Нажимаем комбинацию клавиш Win+R, в появившемся окне пишем такую команду — mmc devmgmt.msc и нажимаем «Enter».

Как включить Bluetooth на Windows 8 – это достаточно распространенный вопрос. Дело в том, что данная операционная система хоть и является максимально удобной, все же имеет сильные отличия от предыдущих версий, к которым уже так привыкли пользователи. Она имеет массу дополнительных сервисов и возможностей, упрощающих работу с компьютером, но, нужно знать, где все они находятся, в частности, система управления Bluetooth адаптером.

Прежде чем переходить к вопросу, как включить адаптер блютуз на компьютере с Виндовс 8, следует установить соответствующие драйвера.

Конечно, вы всегда можете скачать нужное ПО в интернете, но для этого вам нужно знать полное название и модель устройства.

После установки драйвера ваш компьютер с Windows 8 обнаружит новое оборудование. Адаптер Bluetooth будет отображаться в диспетчере устройств. Причем вы сможете увидеть его полное название и модель, а также дополнительную информацию. Чтобы открыть диспетчер оборудования, нужно нажать комбинацию клавиш Windows+R, в появившемся окне написать mmc devmgmt.msc
, и нажать «Enter». В открывшемся меню находим пункт «Сетевые адаптеры» и открываем его. Если драйвера установлены, то ваш Bluetooth будет отображаться здесь.

Как включить блютуз на Windows 8

Итак, где же в виндовс 8 находится блютуз? Все предельно просто. Включить его можно двумя способами:

  • Путем нажатия соответствующей клавиши на клавиатуре.
  • В параметрах компьютера.

Стоит отметить, что оба варианта не взаимозаменяемы. То есть, если вы выключили адаптер на клавиатуре, то в параметрах компьютера включить его не получится. Поэтому сначала выполняем первый пункт, а потом второй. В некоторых случаях второе действие делать не нужно, однако, в большинстве случаев все же необходимо.

Итак, как правило, кнопка для включения Bluetooth адаптера совмещена с WiFi модулем. Это означает, что если включена вай-фай связь, то работает и блютуз. Об этом сигнализирует соответствующий индикатор на корпусе ноутбука. Если речь идет о компьютере, то должен появиться значок Bluetooth в трее (нижний правый угол рабочего стола). Как правило, для включения нам потребуется зажать клавишу «Fn» и, не отпуская ее, нажать кнопку включения WiFi.

Здесь следуем такому пути «Компьютер и устройства Bluetooth». Как правило, здесь имеется бегунок, который следует перевести в положение «Вкл». Однако не пугайтесь, если его нет. Такое также встречается. Если вас интересует, как отключить Bluetooh адаптер в Windows 8, то это сделать можно простым нажатием соответствующей клавиши на клавиатуре. Но, как быть, если нам не нужно выключать WiFi связь?

В таком случае снова переходим в параметры ПК и отключаем устройство. Если такой функции нет, то можно открыть диспетчер устройств, найти свой блютуз и нажать на него правой кнопкой мышки. Далее, выбираете соответствующий пункт.

Как подключить компьютер к устройству по блютузу

Как подключить новое устройство по Bluetooth в Windows 8? После включения модуля на клавиатуре снова входим в параметры компьютера в настройки блютуза. Как это сделать вы уже знаете. Далее, переведете бегунок в положение «Вкл» система автоматически начнет поиск доступных устройств и предложит список. Вам же остается только выделить нужное подключение и нажать кнопку «Связать» (или «Подключить»). Далее, следуйте подсказкам на экране.
