    I'm back. Five days in Memphis, took three days to recoup!

    Recap: I don't have the "share" tab in Bluetooth settings. BT Service is set to automatic and is running. Any ideas on how to get the "share" tab to show up so I can get to the settings in there? I want my PC to accept files from my Galaxy S5 automatically without me having to approve each one. PC is a Dell 8500.

    thanks!

    Bump...

    Recap: Trying to get my Win 10 PC to accept BT files from my phone automatically without having to authorize every file individually. Was told to change a setting in the Share tab on the BT Settings dialogue, but the Share tab does not show up. How do I get that Share tab to show?

    thanks

    I don't have the share tab, but never found it necessary. I can transfer multiple files at once via Bluetooth from my Nexus 7 using ES File Explorer (free on Google play) to select multiple files for transfer to my Windows 10 machine using the "Receive a File" without having to confirm each file individually.

    Hope this helps.

    I want to send files from the phone without having to touch the PC at all, have the PC automatically recognize the device as a trusted device and accept the files and save to a predetermined folder. That's how Win 7 worked, and it was beautiful.

    Windows 10 seems to have changed from the windows 7 model for bluetooth, but if that's how you want it to work, try WiFi direct, as it's in both Android and windows. See this link

    Feem should do what you want with the added bonus WiFi direct is much faster than Bluetooth.

    Thanks, but unfortunately my PC does not have wifi direct, that I can find. My phone does not see my PC on wifi direct and nothing resembling wifi direct can be found when searching my PC.

    If I could get to that damn "Share" tab on Bluetooth settings, I'm sure it would solve this problem. Why can't I see that tab?

    Wifi Direct has been supported in Windows since Windows 8.1. If you have a wifi card in your PC, then wifi direct is natively supported in the wifi API. You just need to install a program or app to take advantage of the API in Windows. Try Feem Lite. It's available in the Windows store (free). Install the app on your Windows 10 machine. If you don't like the Windows store app, there's also a desktop version at Download Feem for iOS, Android, Mac, Windows Phone, Windows RT, Windows Desktop, Mac, Linux.. Then on your Samsung S5, go into google play and install the android version of Feem Lite (also free). You should be then be able to transfer files between your phone and PC within Feem Lite

    win 10

    Hi. I am having the same problem.
    I want to have the auto receive functioning.
    Its a pain in the arse having to allow my laptop to receive files.
    I want to be able to hit the send on my phone and know that the files are on the laptop.
    Some times i am not right by my machine when i want to send a file, so cannot allow it to receive.
    Why change something thats not broken?
    What is the greyed out "Allow a device to connect" on the menu for?
    Anyone had any luck using this?
    Thanks Chris

    Please advise
