Does my computer have Bluetooth?

Like everything else in your computer, Bluetooth requires both hardware and software. A Bluetooth adapter supplies Bluetooth hardware. If your PC didn’t come with the Bluetooth hardware installed, you can easily add it by purchasing a Bluetooth USB dongle.

What is the make and model of the computer?

I would suggest you check the specification of your computer.

To determine whether your PC has Bluetooth hardware, check the Device Manager for Bluetooth Radio by following the steps:

  1. Drag the mouse to the bottom left corner and right-click on the ‘Start icon’.
  2. Select ‘Device Manager’.
  3. Check for Bluetooth Radio in it or you can also find in Network adapters.
