Where is the configuration page


To link a phone to your computer, your computer needs a Bluetooth device that can pair with the phone.
I use something like http://www.mobilefun.co.uk/nano-usb-bluetooth-dongle-p15388.htm on a lot of desktop computers.
Laptops mostly do have a Bluetooth device onboard, but you might have to turn it on. Mind the external switch is set to ON, and then find out how to turn on your Bluetooth transmitter on the laptop.
This is mostly a combination of keys, mine is Fn + F4, but yours might be very different. Look it up in the manual, to be found under support on the site of your manufacturer of the laptop.
If Bluetooth on laptop is turned on, and also your phone set to be detectable:
Pair your phone, look at this movie:

How to replace Toshiba Bluetooth Stack on Microsoft


<p> <p>Bluetooth is named after 12th century Danish King Harald Blatand ("Bluetooth"), whose reign unified the Danes and Norwegians. Bluetooth technology "unites" the wireless devices over short to medium distances, so that your cell phone ring tones from your PC without a cable or you can call with a wireless headset. Some computers have their own Bluetooth driver, or stack, pre-installed. This pile of others changes the generic driver from Microsoft that need to connect some devices. <br /> <p>1. Disconnect all devices, the computer by turning it off or unplug it from your PC. <br /> <p>2. Click "Start" then "Control Panel" and "Add / Remove Programs". Search for "Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba", click the Remove button and click "Yes" to confirm. <br /> <p>3. Restore access to Control Panel and click on "System (Performance and Maintenance)." Select the "Hardware" tab and click "Device Manager". Click the "+" sign next to "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" to expand. When "Motion Computing USB Bluetooth Adapter" from the list, right click and select "Uninstall." <br /> <p>4. Click "Start" and "Run." Type "% windir% \ inf" in the "Open" and click "OK". Check if a file "Bth.bak" or "Bth.inf.old" exists. If none are listed, go to Step 5. If any of these files exist, right-click, choose "Rename" and rename it to "Bth.inf." <br /> <p>5. Restart the computer and the Microsoft Bluetooth drivers are loaded by default. Find the Bluetooth icon in the taskbar. If you cannot see, click "Start" and then "Run." Type "bthprops.cpl" in the "Open" and click "OK" to close the Bluetooth devices and select the options your Bluetooth device. <br />

I can not transfer my file from samsung cell phone to my laptop, though both blootoot device open


Hi saramonadale,
I see that you are transferring files from your Samsung Mobile phone to your Laptop.
  • In Windows lower right side you should see your Bluetooth Icon near the time, for Win Vista and Win7 the Bluetooth Icon should be on the lower right as well but it will be hidden, Look for the arrow pointing up this should show you your Icons.
  • Right click on the Bluetooth Icon then select Open Settings.
  • Once the BT settings window is up the first box you will see will say allow other devices to detect this Laptop something like that put a check on it.
  • Then click on Apply lower right side then OK.
After changing the setting on your Laptop try you Samsung Pone again and see if it will detect the Laptop now.
Note: if the settings above do not work try clicking on Start then All Programs on the list look for Accessories then look for Bluetooth left click on it then it should give you an option to send a file or to receive a file. this will only happen if there are no Bluetooth programs installed on the machine and Windows is the one running the Bluetooth device.
This also works for a desktop that has a Bluetooth Dongle on it.
I hope that this will help you with the transferring of files from your Mobile Phone.
Thank you for choosing Fixya,

How should i send or receive data from other mobile.


  1. Use a cellphone with Bluetooth (wireless connection), or even a USB connection (which is a computer port). These are all good ways to communicate with other devices.
  2. If your computer does not have the hardware for a Bluetooth connection, then buy the adaptor, sometimes called a 'dongle'. The adapter plugs into a USB port. It will be quite cheap, something like 10 to 20 American dollars. This adapter will have software for the connection process, which lets you transfer files from the computer to your phone, and the other way around.
  3. Make sure your computer is equipped with Bluetooth technology (either integrated into the machine or a USB dongle) and active.
  4. Turn on Bluetooth on your mobile device.
  5. Turn on your phone and go into 'Settings' in the Main Menu
  6. Keep going down until you find 'Bluetooth' (Sometimes it may be under 'Connectivity)
  7. Click on it and find 'Turn Bluetooth on' (or something similar) and press 'On'. You can now send and receive files. Once you receive a file, it will most likely be under 'Received Files'. This option can often be found in the Settings or Connectivity menu of your phone.
  8. Pair your computer with your mobile device by making both devices discoverable (also known as visible or unhidden) in the Bluetooth options. Once both are visible, search for Bluetooth devices on your mobile phone
  9. Locate the name of your computer in the results list and select it.
  10. Enter a 4 to 8 digit passcode of your own choosing and press continue.
  11. Once your devices are paired, you can send and receive files.
  12. There are several methods to send a file to your mobile device. One method is to copy the file from your computer, navigate to your mobile device (often found in My Computer or My Bluetooth Places) and then paste the file to the phone. Another option is to right-click on the desired file and select Send To --> Bluetooth Device --> (mobile phone's name).
  13. While the file is being transferred, you should see a progress bar on your computer and/or phone. Once the file is finished transferring, a message stating such should show up on your device's screen.
  14. Find the transferred file on your mobile phone by using the phone's built-in file explorer.

My Lenovo B460 cannot detect bluetooth peripheral device. i have searched online for updated device but not successfully. Please help me. Many thanks


Hi thanhloan88h,

There are some reasons why Bluetooth of your system wont detect any Bluetooth peripheral device. It might be that the Bluetooth is not enabled or there's a missing driver. You may try to enable the bluetooth by pressing the FN+F5. For the bluetooth driver update, please follow the instructions below.

1. First, go to this link to download the latest Bluetooth driver.

2. On that page look for Bluetooth.

3. Ensure that you will download the driver that corresponds to your operating system.

4. Try to save the .exe file to your desktop. Install it then restart your computer.

5. After rebooting, try to press the FN+F5 to enable the bluetooth.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.
