How to Restart the Bluetooth Service

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that has a short range, but provides high levels of security. It is commonly used in mobile phones to enable their hand-free use, allowing the user to take calls while performing other tasks, such as driving. Windows supports various Bluetooth devices, allowing the user to configure or control them through the operating system. The service responsible for managing this interoperability, however, may sometimes need to be restarted to regain its full functionality.

Step

Open your "Start" menu and click "Run." If you don't see it, press and hold your "Windows" key on your keyboard (it has the Windows logo on it), then press "R" on your keyboard.

Step

Type in "services.msc" and press "Enter."

Step

Scroll down to "Bluetooth Support Service."

Step

Right-click "Bluetooth Support Service" and click "Restart." You may now close the Services window.
