Easy Fix for Bluetooth Missing from Windows 10 Issue

SHARE:



Bluetooth is present today in every household that we no longer think of it as something awesome or advanced. We use it for connecting earphones, mice, keyboards, and more daily. Still, it appears that cut the cord is the new IT thing. All that is good but what happens when Bluetooth is missing from the Device Manager itself in Windows 10?

I like the 3.5 mm jack and am sad that it is going away. It may appear as a legacy technology, but it still works flawlessly. It takes less than a second to connect. That’s why I always carry a pair of earphones with me always.

Anyway, that’s just me. Let’s see how you can resolve this issue and go back to listening to that new album or connecting your Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.

1. Update OS and Reboot


This is how the Device Manager without the Bluetooth adapter option should look on your computer.

If you have been reading our site since a while then you know the drill. Press Windows key+I to open Settings and click on Update & Security. Let’s see if updating the OS helps.

If there are any updates available, click on the Download button and update your PC. You can check for them manually too.

Even if there is no update available, I would recommend you to reboot your PC once as it is known to help.

2. Show Hidden Devices


Open the Device Manager from Windows Search and click on the View option to select Show hidden devices.

Yes, when the list of devices goes very long, Windows 10 OS will create a nested list of devices showing only the main category. Maybe the Bluetooth option is hidden for some reason.



6. Restart Bluetooth Support Service


Press Windows key+R on your keyboard to open the Run prompt and type services.msc before hitting Enter.

When it opens, find Bluetooth Support Service and right-click on it to start it. If it is already running, click Restart and wait a few seconds.

If this works, click Properties in the same menu and under the General tab, choose Automatic next to Startup type.

You won’t have to repeat this step every time you reboot your computer now.

7. USB Bluetooth Adapter


If none of the solutions worked so far, then you probably have two options left. One is to use a USB Bluetooth Adapter that you can easily find on a site like Amazon. They are not very expensive either, but you will sacrifice one USB slot for it.

8. Reset


I am not a fan of this option but if you have come this far, then there is nothing much left to do. Press on Windows key+I to open Settings and click on Update & Security.

Under the Recovery tab, click on Get started under Reset.

Select Keep my files option in the next screen. That means your PC will be wiped clean, reset to the way it was when it was delivered to your home, except all your files and folders will remain intact. You will lose all installed apps and their respective settings. I would also recommend you to take a backup on an external hard drive, just in case.

Follow the on-screen instructions now and note that it will take a long time. So, make sure that your laptop is connected to a power source. You don’t want to interrupt this process midway.

Stay Connected


Like I said, I dumb tech that’s quick and easy to use. If you can’t see Bluetooth in Device Manager, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the adapter is malfunctioning. It is most likely a software related issue.
