    Bluetooth support in Win10?

    Bluetooth devices worked perfectly in Win8.1 but after upgrade to Win10, no Bluetooth radio in Device Manager and Bluetooth devices not detected.

    Did MS forget about BT in Win10?

    Nope. Works fine on two systems I have. You may need to hunt for drivers from the Blkuetooth OEM.

    Check Device Manger for a non functional Bluetooth entry. My USB Bluetooth adapter had a bad entry in device manager, had it search for an updated driver and all is well.

    Tks for the responses guys - Bluetooth USB Host Controller is showing an error but auto driver update does not work and no manufacturer info in "Properties" to allow me to search for a driver.

    Bit of a funny one - converted a MacBook Pro to Win8.1 with BootCamp drivers for the essentials - worked perfectly under 8.1 but no luck in 10.

    Appreciate the collective wisdom and assistance

    You may need to contact the Bluetooth vendor.

    Acer brought out a Win 8.0 laptop but their Bluetooth wasn't supported for Win 8.1 which resulted in a RMA - you could have a similar situation.

    Slightly different but I've had to update my Win 7 Realtek wireless driver to a Win 8 one to get it to work in Win 10.
