    Inability to find bluetooth

    Hi guys..
    I'm really sorry if i'm going to sound stupid but I'm really bad at this
    I can't seem to find the bluetooth button anywhere.
    It won't appear on the quick sidebar menu or anywhere in the in the PC settings.
    I've tried to search the computer but it's not there.
    I can access the devices added to the laptop through the control panel but whenever I search to add a device it won't find it.(If that helps??!)
    any help would be much appreciated!
    Thank you

    Does your PC even support bluetooth? Not all computer's support bluetooth.

    Quick sidebar menu/Charms Bar >> Change PC Settings >> Left-hand column below PC and devices -- Bluetooth.

    Once it is turned on, there should be a Bluetooth icon in the Notification Tray where you can access various functions.

    There might be a setting that inhibits the Tray icon completely.
