Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows you to connect devices together. In Windows 10, you can use Bluetooth to pair keyboards, phones, speakers, and so on. Bluetooth is effective when it works, but you may encounter problems when trying to pair your device with a Windows 10 system. We will show you how to troubleshoot these pairing issues.
The following solutions will only work if your Bluetooth device is placed near your computer. Because range is an important factor when connecting to a Bluetooth device, you should keep your mobile phone or other Bluetooth device closer to your computer.
1] Check services
There is a Bluetooth-related service that works and helps you use Bluetooth. If this service was stopped for any reason, this problem may occur on your computer. To check this, open Services. You can call Cortana or use the runtime prompt. Press Win + R, type services.msc and click the Enter button. Find the Bluetooth Help Desk and double-click it to open the properties. Make sure the service status is running. If it appears to be stopped, you must click the Start button.
Also check that the startup type is set to Manual.
2] Restart the Bluetooth driver
If your Bluetooth driver is trailing in the background, you may not be able to connect a Bluetooth device to your computer. You must restart your Bluetooth driver and check whether it solves your problem or not. To begin, press Win + X and select Device Manager. Expand the Bluetooth menu> right-click the Bluetooth driver> select Disable device.
3] Run Bluetooth troubleshooting
In Windows 10, you can search various convenience stores with a friendly interface and use them to solve a problem of this type. To run Bluetooth troubleshooting, open Windows 10 Settings> Update and Security> Troubleshoot.
On your right, you should find an option called Bluetooth. Click on it and select Run Troubleshooter. Follow the screen option to run it.
These three solutions are the most effective in solving this problem. You must also make sure that your Bluetooth driver is up to date and that you have installed the latest updates for your Windows 10 operating system.
It will ask you for a confirmation, where you have to select Yes. Right-click the same driver again and select Enable Device. You can also select Action> Check for Hardware Changes to get the latest changes.
