Newly installed Windows 10 could bring a lot of troubles to its users. One of these troubles is, as reported, the problem with Bluetooth devices. Apparently, after the upgrade, Windows 10 seems to not even recognize certain Bluetooth accessories.

A couple of things could cause your Bluetooth device to not work, and we’ll talk about them now. First, it won’t hurt if you check if your Bluetooth is enabled. To do so, go to Settings > Devices and check if Bluetooth is toggled on. Also make sure that your Bluetooth device is fully charged and discoverable (this is not exactly a Windows 10-related solution, but it won’t hurt if you check).

And now probably the solution that will fix your Bluetooth problems in Windows 10, updating a driver. It’s probably the millionth time you’ve read about it, but it could be helpful. So, if you didn’t receive an update for your driver through Windows Update, head to Device Manager and try to download the latest driver for your Bluetooth device manually.

If you think you’d be luckier, you can also search for the compatible driver on the manufacturer’s website. Here’s how to properly search for the Bluetooth driver on the internet:

  1. Go to Device Manager and right click on your Bluetooth Device
  2. Select Properties and go to Advanced tab
  3. Write down the number next to Manufacturer ID
  4. Go to this page and enter your Manufacturer ID
  5. It will identify the manufacturer of your Bluetooth accessory, and it will redirect you to the right page where you can download the latest driver

Updating drivers manually is very annoying, so we recommend you to download this driver updater tool (100% safe and tested by us)  to do it automatically. Thus, you will prevent file loss and even permanent damage to your computer.

It’s worth to mention that some users reported that they solved the Bluetooth problem when they uninstalled the driver, and then installed it again, so you can try this as well.

If you have any other Windows 10-related issues you can check for the solution in our Windows 10 Fix section.
