    Bluetooth - How to install it


    Long, long threads about the 2015 / 2016 "bug" that Bluetooth would not be banished from Action Center, etc., BUT my laptop does not show BT in the Device Manager and I seem unable to download a driver from the mfg. (Acer) and install that.

    This Acer laptop came with Win7 - at the appropriate moment it was upgraded to Win10 x64 Home, and is now ver 1607, OS build 14343.1480.

    Instead of worrying about how to shut off Bluetooth I have discovered a useful BT device which also wants to be connected to USB (which I understand is normal) so I want to install BT.

    I have downloaded Acer drivers, so called, which will not load.

    The Device manager has no entry for Bluetooth, at all. There are 2 Bluetooth local services listed, one is Handsfree Service and the other Support Service. Neither is running. The Support Service reports no dependencies - Handsfree is dependent upon Support. Both will not start.

    Is there something I have missed in this process?

    Thank you.

    Solved? I guess.


    OK. I guess I have searched enough now to accept that Bluetooth will not be found without a dongle.
