How do I set an Ace Bluetooth?

Acer laptop and desktop computers are often equipped with Bluetooth wireless connections. This useful technique is very simple to master, even the least tech-savvy people. With a few mouse clicks, you can use your Acer laptop to a Bluetooth device and never have to worry about cable clutter.


1. Connect the laptop and the Bluetooth device.


2. Activate the Bluetooth device discovery. The exact method varies greatly among devices.


3. Click the "Start" button on the home screen of Windows. Click "Control Panel" from the menu that appears. Select the "Bluetooth Settings" icon and click "Add."


4. Select "My device is setup and ready to be found" and click Next. The laptop will search the area for Bluetooth devices and list them.


5. Select the device you want to close the list that appears. Click "Next."


6. Enter the numeric password for the Bluetooth device when prompted. Some devices do not require a passkey, for those who do; you can use the code in the manual to find the owner.


7. Click on "My Computer" icon on the desktop. Check the window that pops up a "Bluetooth Device" icon. If you see one, the device is successfully connected.

HOW TO ENABLE BLUETOOTH IN THIS NOTEPAD ?


The Acer Aspire is a high-performance laptop that includes a fast processor, widescreen display and an internal wireless card. In addition to these premium features, certain models also include one-touch Bluetooth access. If you have an Acer, enabling the Bluetooth is very easy and will only take a few seconds.

1.Turn on your computer and wait for Windows to fully boot. Then log in as an administrator. You will not be able to use Bluetooth under a non-administrator account.

2.Press the button with the Bluetooth symbol on the left side of the computer. This will launch the Bluetooth utility. From here you can sync and manage Bluetooth peripherals.

3.Press the Bluetooth button again to disable Bluetooth. This will disable all connections, but the utility will save your settings so the same devices will sync with the computer again when Bluetooth is re-enabled.

I hope you may find it very helpful.
