Windows 10: Can never get bluetooth transfer from windows to phones/tablets

    Can never get bluetooth transfer from windows to phones/tablets

    I have had a bluetooth transfer issue with windows since windows 7. I will pair my android phones/tablets with the pc/s and try to send a file. It usually throws an error. I try re-pairing which works but this issue still exists. Over the years I just assumed Microsoft just did bluetooth poorly and jabbed the usb cable in to do it the old fashioned way which usually handled the issue more quickly than toying with it further.

    The devices transfer fine between each other but over the years I have never gotten windows to transfer even one file even between windows devices much less my current androids. A few times I tried to transfer between my notebook and desktop and that too failed always. After all these years it feels kind of foolish to sit down and ask but, really this is the only time I have even taken the time to look into it. Like I say shoving a usb cable or sd card usually got the file moved quicker than the time spent sending,fail, forget, re-pair, send, fail scenario. I have over the years kind of just used bluetooth in windows for audio output for speakers and such and ignored the rest as that seemed all it was capable of doing ok.

    So I humbly ask for someone to help me to learn to transfer files from/to Windows.

    Here is my latest trial with three paired devices with my lenovo yoga 151kb

    File:Old Telephone.mp3 294kb (ringtone)

    Lenovo yoga 151kb>Samsung Galaxy s5

    Windows was unable to transfer some files

    The OBEX service on the destination computer or device is not available or ready for the
    transfer. Please try again. If you cannot complete the transfer, read the manufacturer's
    documentation that came with the device.

    Lenovo yoga 151kb>Samsung Galaxy J7 Sky Pro(straight talk phone)

    Windows was unable to transfer some files
    A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a
    period of time, or established connection failed because connected host failed to respond.

    Lenovo yoga 151kb>P0OCC (Asus Zenpad 10 z300m)
    No error appears at all and appears to start sending this small file and just sits there 1/3 finished for 10 minutes until I hit cancel.
