How to install Bluetooth drivers on Windows 10 PC

You can install Bluetooth yourself on your Windows 10 computer if the adapter is not working properly. This could be due to problems with the drivers at installation or because of conflicts that can be resolved by either automatic reinstallation or the correct driver manual.

How to install Bluetooth drivers on PC

Depending on the computer or Bluetooth device you want to use, Windows 10 may or may not connect properly, which may be for a number of reasons. One of the most common is the standard Microsoft Bluetooth driver or the one provided by the device not working properly on the computer.

In this case, you can reinstall the drivers automatically or manually.

1. Reinstalling Bluetooth Drivers Automatically

Windows 10 installs Bluetooth drivers for the components by downloading them from the manufacturer’s website, but if they are not working, you can force them to be reinstalled. On a store-bought computer (desktop or laptop), it is very likely that the pre-installed manufacturer’s drivers will generate conflicts and will not work.

  1. Type “Device Manager” in the Windows search area and click the option that appears;
  2. Click “Bluetooth” and then right-click on the computer’s Bluetooth adapter;
  3. Click on “Update Driver”;
  4. Click on “Automatically Search for Updated Driver Software”;
  5. Click “Next” to proceed through the steps until Windows 10 downloads and reinstalls the driver;
  6. Click “Close” and restart Windows 10.

And ready.

2. Reinstalling Bluetooth Drivers Manually

If reinstalling the Bluetooth driver over the internet does not work, you can choose to reinstall manually. In this case you will need to identify the adapter model and enter the manufacturer’s website to download the required packages.

If the Bluetooth driver is an executable file (.exe), do the following:

  1. Open the executable file;
  2. Follow the installation process until the end;
  3. Restart Windows 10.

That simple.

If you downloaded a miscellaneous file package, do the following:

  1. Type “Device Manager” in the Windows search area and click the option that appears;
  2. Click “Bluetooth” and then right-click on the computer’s Bluetooth adapter;
  3. Click on “Update Driver”;
  4. Click “Browse my computer for driver software,” “Browse,” select the location where the files are and click “OK”;
  5. Click “Next” and reinstall the driver by clicking “Close” at the end;
  6. Restart Windows 10.

And ready.
