How do I activate Bluetooth when the options aren't showing?

By EvilUnicornLord ·

I've recently tried connecting a bluetooth headset up with my Windows 10 Desktop computer (this is the computer: but there is no option to toggle bluetooth in the notifications bar in the corner, nor is there an option to toggle it in settings > bluetooth and other devices.

I updated Bluetooth to the latest version and it still doesn't show any options to toggle bluetooth in either areas.

Are there any other methods of toggling bluetooth?

First thing here is I suppose you need to fit a Bluetooth Card

So you have the ability to communicate via Bluetooth.

Normally Bluetooth is not something fitted to a Desktop just as WiFi isn't a standard thing fitted to this type of system. You need to add a Plug In Daughter Card to the M['board.

USB Bluetooth Adapter

The computer that you have does not have Bluetooth built in. You would need to purchase a USB Bluetooth Adapter. Since the computer is running Windows 10, all you need to do is then plug in the adapter and it should be ready to use. You can then pair your headset to your computer.
