How to Tell If My Computer Has Bluetooth

Bluetooth is a technology that allows you to connect devices together wirelessly. Bluetooth is commonly used to connect cell phones and headsets, but computers benefit from Bluetooth as well. Connect devices such as keyboards, mice, printers and microphones to your computer through a Bluetooth connection. Though similar to wireless, Bluetooth works differently and requires your computer to be Bluetooth-capable. A wireless card does not equal Bluetooth. By checking your network options, you can tell if your computer has Bluetooth or not.
