    Add Bluetooth / devices to "Share jewel" ? :(

    I am using a Lenovo Miix 8 tablet running Windows 8.1. I would like to add the ability to share files via Bluetooth, using the Windows 8 metro "share button" when you swipe from the right.

    Currently my options include: taking a screenshot and a number of other programs (which added themselves during installs).

    The Bluetooth devices in question are a desktop PC (windows 7) and an Android (4.2.2) cell phone. Both devices are added within "Bluetooth devices" however were unable to be found when trying to add them as general "devices".

    During my attempts to make this happen, I even have the cell phone "paired" with the tablet.
