Per information, Bluetooth is a powerful wireless technology that allows users to connect devices such as keyboards, mice, printers and other peripherals to the computer without the hassle of wires. Although Bluetooth technology is quite eloquent in its simplicity, enabling the functionality and connecting a device for the first time can be difficult because the initial settings are a bit buried in the computer’s system preferences.
From ages, what we all know is that — Bluetooth technology helps us to connect to other devices.
In today’s article, I want to educate you on how you can enable Bluetooth on a Dell Inspiron laptop with steps below.

In Windows Vista or later, click the “Start” menu and select “Control Panel.” Under the “Hardware and Sound” heading, click the “Bluetooth Devices” icon.
