Did this video help you?

crimzenballer1: for some my laptop can't locate bluetooth devices? they're both on and working but its been like this ever since i bought the new laptop. please help?

Kunal Verma: Shortcut really helped :)

Chad Cooper: Do you know how I would be able to use my laptop as a bluetooth speaker for my phone? I'd like to play music from my phone through my laptop, but whenever I connect my phone to my computer (via bluetooth), they just say that they're paired, and nothing else happens. Every time I right-click the Bluetooth icon (in the task bar) and open the settings, and try to click on "audio" the program stops responding and I have to close it. I'd appreciate any input you can give, as you seem to know what you're doing! I'm running Windows 8.1 and my phone is an HTC One M8. Thanks!

Peter Keogh: Thanks, I wanted to automate this (of course Microsoft has no useful help on the subject) and I found if you set the Bluetooth device as the default device when it is connected it will be the default but when its disconnected the default magically switches back to the integrated speaker. I realise this defeats the point of a default and I have no idea how to change the default default although you may never want to. Hope this is helpful to somone

SuperPsych Otic: Ok, so I bought bluetooth headphones and I don't know how to turn the bluetooth on or find it on my laptop...

Helen Kennedy: Very good video, step by step guide on icons etc. I am sure you could help me with my problem. I have tried everything I know to connect my headphones, but no luck so far. - (

paleridertexas: i accidentally disabled the microphone on the recording devices tab. how do i enable it?

Kad Tubo: I cant connect my device and my wireless mouse?

Mara-Jade Hallam: I don't have a devices tab...

Song Sejuani: hey what do i do if my laptop isn't reading my bluetooth device? help please i will be grateful, thank you

Karl Vella: Thanks for the video...really helped me and i also noticed you reply on almost every comment if not all of them kudos for that not all people give care to such things ;D

Alex Christenson: My computer does not recognize my headphones and a sound device. I can pair them, but when I go to sound options, they do not show up. Any ideas?

SeciMasuBre: Please help me bro. When i connect my phone to the laptop, it registers it, i confirm the registration number on the laptop and the phone, everything seems fine, but then, it stays "connected" for only few seconds and ends up with a device name and under it it says "Not Connected".. i hope you understood what i mean? Thanks a lot dude!

MissGecko7: Thank you so much for your help on this issue - certainly a flaw of Windows 8/8.1 taking the connect/dissconnect options out of the bluetooth (non-)settings where they used to be in Win 7. I was already beginning to despair as forums show this question a lot, but without any viable answer. Until I found your video tutorial :-)

Mike Fischer: Very nice job on this video. Works well with Windows 8.1 on a Dell Tablet. Thank You.

Bartłomiej Serafiński: This is ridiculous...that is why android and ios are killing windows platform. Simplicity is the game and Microsoft don't know hot to play it.. 

Russell S.: um hey when ever it disconnects it doesnt appear in sound :/ what should i do

Helen Kennedy: You seem very talented with computers. I have just been given a pair of DR BTN200 wireless speakers. I have tried to connect them but I get the dialogue box stating ensure your device is discoverable. Bluetooth is enabled, but I get this every time. Can anyone help me with this. I am partially deaf and headphones work well. Thanks. 

Anthony Navarro: helpful but please speak up

Oli Sagar: thanks a lot mine didnt even work without headphones but its fixed now :)

Yoel Buzgalo: My Windows 8.1 PC Settings doesnt show Wireless section (Where you can enable bluetooth and such)...Can you tell me where to find the bluetooth? and does all PC's come with bluetooth? and what does a bluetooth driver do?

BlackSmithWolf: How do I make my microphone go into "discovery mode" it only has three buttons... 

Shifa Syed: after an hour of searching FINALLY!! THANKYOU!! <3

inscrutable67: Thanks for the tips. That are unfortunately necessary due to how crappy windows 8 is. 

Ace: I don't get the downvotes - best tutorial for the tedious, unintuitive task of dis-/ connecting bluetooth speakers

spikedublin13: Omg thank you soooo much, this was such a pain in the ass. your audio was poor but very very helpful nonetheless 

Matthew Booth: This was really helpful, thanks! Please get yourself a microphone, though :)

northlander: computer pairs with sony bluetooth but no sound

DNAPOSIEDON: whenever i plug in my headphones it says there speakers so i unplug my speakers and it still says my headphones are speakers please help me 

Matt Jones: Only one speaker works:(

Denise Duron: my bluetooth devices show that they are paired, but will NOT connect and have sound. help?

Beatapsara: Thanks for the video - I managed to connect my speaker and it worked fine for a while. Now it´s disconnected and shows up in bluetooth devices as offline (it´s on). I tried to connect it through the Sound, but the only thing showing up there is my loudspeaker...

DestructiveGamer: Can this work for a Ex-02 Bluetooth Device? for a Windows 8 x64 version........I need to know Asap before I download and install a Bluetooth Driver! please help me dude +Brandon Neubert 

Alyssa Porter: It doesn't show all the options that it does on yours... it only shows Test, Show Disabled Devices, Show Connected Device, About Software, and Properties. Please help... I am having to connect remove the device and on and on. I am connected to a BOSE speaker, and I connect with it just fine on my kindle, iPad, and nook.

Aggressive Videos: i have a speaker, bluetooth, but my computer doens't have bluetooth -.- windows 8, newest version

EternallApprentace: FFS, it's about time someone helped me get over the install, uninstall, and install AGAIN hump, wow lol. Thanks man, ur right it's all pretty simple...*sigh, they just layer and cover echrything up for you to find =S This vid is as good as any Christmas/ New Years gift lmao ( no, I don't usually get gifts for new years. But awesome!)

Lennart Raun: What about reconnecting bluetooth devices (Logitech BT adapter, win8.1), everything works fine first time, device is found, paired and connected, but when the reconnection is needed, then the device is visible as disconnected and only option there is to delete device and pair again, is there any way to reconnect device without deleting it first?

BF4 boy: thanks dude

Kevin Johnson: You can get to the Sounds page by right-clicking the speaker in the bottom right and selecting "Sounds" from the menu.

MysteryViolette: So I have a new Bluetooth headset that I recently bought. I've done everything the video told me to do, and what the book for the device told me to do- and it doesn't work. Is there any way to plug in the device, and manually add it to the computer system? They're iLive Blue, IAHB64.

JerzeYxKinG: how do i know if my laptop got bluetooth i scan for devices but nothing shows up and i have my bluetooth on in my stereo and phone

Patrick de los Reyes: Is that Dave's Wave on your desktop? Nice pic...

Zin Armagadan: So I have a bluetooth headset and Windows 8 wont pair with it. It's an urban camo PS3 headset. I know it works with other versions of Windows because I've done it before...

Richard Sykes: Awesome! Thank you.

love pinto: hey my laptop is windows 8 and leaves me turn the bluetooth

TheMinecraftmania30: oh and the headset is an Turtle Beach Z11 plz help! my friends cant hear me on Skype!

Derick Burton: Anyone know if I can play different applications simultaneously through different audio outputs?

angryangel10: Oh thank you so much. Almost threw my speaker out the window. So annoying . One question. What if I take that same speaker to the beach and pair to my phone, how can I get Windows to connect to the speaker without uninstalling?

Jayson Blazer: it says rundll32 and I cant remove the device still SOMEONE HELP PLZZZ

Nicholas Mace: "functionality"
