Find out how to enable Bluetooth on your laptop.

Laptop computers come with built-in Bluetooth wireless capabilities. Using the Bluetooth adapter of your notebook, you can make short-range wireless connections with other Bluetooth-compatible devices, including other computers, audio headsets, cell phones, printers, keyboard and mouse. Usually, notebooks have a small "Bluetooth" button, which when pressed, switches on Bluetooth. If your laptop doesn't have this button, there is another way for you to switch it on.
