    Wireless Headphones & Bluetooth


    So, I am wanting a pair of Wireless Headphones. I saw a pair from Wal-Mart earlier. I know Windows 10 supports Bluetooth. Is there any special driver, or something that I would need to install that would allow me to connect the headphones to Bluetooth to Windows 10? I don't know if the headphones comes with an installation disk or what. I have no idea. I am also on a Desktop computer, so I am not sure how that works either

    Bluetooth Wireless frequently comes with the Wireless/Wi-Fi adapter in Notebooks, not so much with Desktops so the solution I use when needed is an inexpensive dongle by IOgear, basically works in any USB port. If it needs a driver it helps to be connected to the Internet. I have a couple of these on hand but haven't opened the packages yet, don't recall if the one I have in use came with a driver or got it online:

    So, if i got one of these, all I would have to do is plug the dongle into a USB port and then connect my bluetooth headphones to that dongle and I would be able to listen to music, watch shows, etc and hear the sound through the wireless headphones?

    It's much the same as I use with my Notebooks and Bluetooth mice, one would plug in the dongle, do any setup of it then do the setup of the device then Pair it with the computer.

    If your computer has Bluetooth it is very easy to setup your headphones. Just turn them on and go into the Bluetooth settings. Then look for your headphone in the list of devices. If they are listed you just need to pair them to the computer.
