    How to Add or Remove a Bluetooth context menu in Windows 10

    information   Information
    There are many different types of Bluetooth enabled devices you can add to your PC, such as mobile phones, wireless headsets, and wireless mouse devices and keyboards.

    After you've paired (connected) a Bluetooth enabled device with a Bluetooth enabled computer, you can change the name of the device or enable or disable services for it. You can also control how your computer pairs with this and with other Bluetooth enabled devices.

    You can use Bluetooth technology to transfer files wirelessly between your computer and a Bluetooth device, or between your computer and another Bluetooth enabled computer.

    You must have Bluetooth wireless technology installed on your PC to have "Bluetooth File Transfer" and "Bluetooth Settings" available.


    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove Bluetooth to the desktop context menu for all users in Window 10.

    While you must be signed in as and administrator to be able to add or remove the Bluetooth context menu, all users will be able to use the context menu.

    Just an FYI to potentially help others avoid the frustration I've endured the past 2 days with getting Windows 10 on this Desktop P.C. to recognize and "pair" with Bluetooth devices. I'm using a Bluetooth adapter, plugged into a USB Port.

    Windows 10 kept labeling my Bluetooth device as a "Generic" when doing it's scan for Bluetooth devices. When I clicked on this generic device, Win10 couldn't connect/pair to it.

    What I learned is that the software which comes with these Bluetooth USB dongles is not needed with Windows10. If you have the software installed, it can/will interfere with Window10's native ability to properly identify the device, download the compatible drivers, and connect to it.

    I uninstalled the software that came with the Bluetooth adapter and Win10 auto-downloaded everything it needed, and the device (wireless headphones) paired instantly, sound great, and even have more sound customization settings in Win10 than they had in Win7.

    Note: I don't think Win10 is supporting all the Bluetooth adapter dongles yet. I have two. A Kinivo and an Asus. The Kinivo didn't work with it's software installed, or using Windows10's native Bluetooth connectivity. It's the Asus adapter that works great. Good thing I had the Asus as a spare. Was using the Kinivo as primary with Win10.
