Connecting Bluetooth devices to Windows 10
Step 1: Turn on the Bluetooth device and make it discoverable. The way you make it discoverable depends on the device. Check your devices user manual.
Step 2: Then on your laptop, press the Windows key + I to open the Settings app.
Step 3: Navigate to Devices and go to Bluetooth.
Step 4: Make sure the Bluetooth switch is in the On position. (You'll know it is working because you'll notice the message that reads "Your PC is searching for and can be discovered by Bluetooth devices.")
Step 5: Select the device you're trying to connect and click Pair.
Once you click Pair, you're all done. Windows 10 will take care of the rest. You'll notice the "Connected" label under the device name.
Alternatively, if you're simply trying to connect a Bluetooth audio or wireless display, you can simply do the following:
Step 1: In the Notification Area in the Taskbar, click to open the Action Center button (or use the Windows key + A keyboard shortcut).
Step 2: From the Quick Actions area, click the Connect button.
Step 3: Then all the enabled devices will appear in the list, click on the device, and it should pair automatically.
