    The Bluetooth device can just be ignored unless there are devices close by such as mice, keyboards, cellphones, etc., that can communicate to the computer [usually less than about 10 meters] or it can be disabled in Device Manager. It should be noted that Bluetooth on Notebooks is usually part of the Wi-Fi adapter, manually turning off Wi-Fi also turns off Bluetooth, I have 4 Notebooks that work that way, an HP, 2 Dells and a MacBook Pro. A Bluetooth dongle can be purchased for Desktops or if wishing to add it to a non-equipped Notebook.

    You're welcome. Just keep in mind that Bluetooth devices have to be Paired to the computer to be useful.

    From what I understand the toggle presence depends on if you're on a mobile or desktop device, there are no toggles for bluetooth and wi-fi on desktop PC's. Windows 10 is great and all but there are a lot of these small "features" that makes you just scratch your head over what the devs were thinking, I mean, why not include toggles on a desktop PC? I can't think of any reason.

    I recently bought a mini PC (ECS Liva) and it comes with a card that incorporates both wi-fi and bluetooth in the same card. My wi-fi doesn't play well with bluetooth (because wi-fi) so I would like to disable the bluetooth signal, NOT the bluetooth device. If I disable the bluetooth adapter in the device manager the wi-fi adapter stops working. So here is a legit reason to include toggles on ALL devices.

    I have a desktop with no bluetooth device installed; no wireless either. Yet, I can not turn BT off.

    Did you look in Services and disable the Bluetooth settings in services, then reboot??

    Yes, From services.msc <---- type in your search window, or select from the pic, at the bottom choose "Open Services" then choose properties , disable. Then reboot. On my 2 computers this works only after a reboot. Worth a shot anyhow. This has to be a another bug in windows thou. Sometime this works, sometimes it doesn't.
    Only reason to go to the Services is to check that its disabled, being stopped just is not enough.
