    • On your Windows laptop, go to the “Settings” menu. You can usually access this by clicking the Start button and then the gear-shaped icon.
    • In the Settings menu, select “Devices.”
  4. Add a Bluetooth Device:
    • In the Devices settings, click on “Bluetooth & other devices” on the left sidebar.
    • Under “Bluetooth,” make sure Bluetooth is turned on.
    • Click the “+ Add Bluetooth or other device” button.
