Establishing Bluetooth® Connection in Windows® 7 Laptop
How does one set up a Bluetooth connection in a Windows 7 laptop?
The Bluetooth technology is one of the options that is available for sharing data. A Bluetooth connection between two devices can be set up by turning on the Bluetooth functionality in both the devices. An appropriate driver software should also be there to make the connection possible. In laptops that have Windows 7 as their operating system, the user should turn on the Bluetooth functionality by pressing any button or by sliding the button to an option state. After turning on the option, the user should click on the 'Start menu' and then search for the 'Bluetooth' option. The user then needs to click on the search item that is displayed. Inside the Bluetooth-enabled devices window, the user should find the other system that is ready to for connection with the user's computer. Click, connect the system, and then proceed with the data sharing process.
Things to keep in mind while setting up a Bluetooth connection:
- Download driver software
- Keep devices at close range
- Enable connection
Download driver software
The main thing a Windows 7 system should have is a driver software for a Bluetooth device. The in-built or plugged-in Bluetooth capability should be backed up by an appropriate driver software so that it works better with Windows 7. For this, the user should download the driver software for the device from any one website and install it in their system. Then you need to establish a connection with other systems.
Keep devices at close range
Another thing that the user should keep in mind while establishing a Bluetooth connections with other devices is the positioning of the devices. The range in the case of Bluetooth devices should be comparatively shorter. If it isn't, the user may not find the device that is ready for connection with their system. In order to avoid such an issue, the user should position the devices at an appropriate distance to establish a proper Bluetooth connection.
The user's system should be enabled in order to establish Bluetooth connection with other Bluetooth-enabled devices. For this, the user should change the settings of their Windows 7 system. They need to click on 'Start menu' and then select 'Control Panel'. Inside the 'Control Panel' window, click on the 'Devices and printers' section and there the user can view the 'Bluetooth device' option. The user needs to right click on the option and then select Bluetooth properties. Inside the properties window, the user must click on the option that enables the system to appear in the windows of other Bluetooth-enabled devices while the connection is established. Thus, other devices can find the Windows 7 system quite easily.
