The working and functionality of Bluetooth wholly depend on Bluetooth Support Service.
So, check whether it is working or not.


  • Press Windows Key +R (⊞Win +R) to open a Run dialog box and search for services.msc, or you can search on start search box for Services in windows.

Type services.msc

  • Click on Bluetooth Support Service and click to Restart.Restart it
  • Click again and go to properties and check whether it’s running or not.

check running or not

  • If It’s not working, then click Start.

Now check the Bluetooth status on your settings. If it’s not working, then follow the next step.
Follow the next step if the Bluetooth option is missing from your device, and there is no icon to enable it.


3. Re-Installing the Bluetooth driver

It would be best to uninstall the device manager’s Bluetooth driver to update it with the new one. So let’s begin with that:

  • Go to Device manager from This pc >Properties>Device Manager or search in the start search box for device manager.


check bluetooth

  • If Bluetooth is not on the list, then click on view>show hidden devices. Here, you can probably see the Bluetooth option.

method 2:

It would help if you uninstalled the Bluetooth adapter driver, and you should reboot your system to update the uninstalled driver automatically by the system itself.

method 3:

If your system cannot update your driver after reboot, then follow this method:

Again go to Device Manager and follow the first method again of Scanning for hardware changes.

Then your system will automatically detect the latest Bluetooth Driver and installs it.
Sadly, If the driver is not updated by chance, then, follow the next method.

method 4:

You can update the Bluetooth driver manually by installing the latest version of it.
