Connecting Bluetooth Devices - PC

Installation Burners & Drives, Desktop & All In One Computers, Laptops Last Updated 12/05/2015

This article provides information about connecting a Bluetooth device to your LG PC.

Some devices may require additional drivers from their respective manufacturers, but most will not require anything additional.

Note: Compatibility between different versions of Bluetooth (e.g. BT 2.0 vs BT 4.0) may cause issues.


Connecting a Bluetooth device is a fairly easy process.

Before beginning the Pairing (connection) process, make sure the following prerequisites are met:

  • If your Bluetooth device requires any special drivers, be sure to follow the instructions that came with the device.
  • Make sure the device is powered on, and in Pairing mode. Check the device's user manual for instructions.
  • Check for any special requirements for pairing the device, such as whether the PC needs to be discoverable.

To Pair a Bluetooth Device:


To access the new Settings menu:

  1. Open the Start Menu by clicking the Start icon from the Taskbar.
  2. From here, click the Settings icon (bottom-left).

Click Devices from the Settings menu.


Make sure Bluetooth is turned on:

  1. Select Bluetooth from the left margin.
  2. Make sure the switch is set to On. If it's off, click the icon to toggle it On.

Note: This is for laptops only. Desktops do not have an option to turn Bluetooth on or off.


Pair your device:

  1. Select your device from the list.
  2. Click the Pair button.

Some devices may have a verification code:

  1. Check the code displayed on the device and compare it to the one displayed on the PC.
  2. If the codes match, click Yes.

If you need to change one of the following settings:

  • Discovery - Make the PC disoverable by other Bluetooth devices.
  • Notification - Whether the PC will notify you when a new device is connected.
  • Notification Icon - Whether the Bluetooth icon appears in the Notifications area of the Taskbar (bottom-right).

  2. Click More Bluetooth options from the bottom.

The Bluetooth Settings dialog will open.
