How do i know if my computer has a bluetooth adapter?

I am unsure if my computer has a built in adapter and i cannot find where it states if i do or not. I am currntly trying to use the bluetooth on my computer but am having problems with it and i cant quite figure out if im just doing it wrong or if my computer just isnt meant to do it. Please help.

Identify your desktop PC with the p/n found on either a sticker on the back or on the bottom of the HP Suport Assistant window.

 

If your desktop has the HP Support Assistant install then use the Discovery feature. It should give you information about the installed hardware features.

 

Desktop PCs do not generally come with a bluetooth transceiver installed. They normally require a dongle to be plugged into a USB port for bluetooth to operate.

 

Kind regards,

My notebook bluetooth microsoft mouse has the dongle in a storage space on the bottom of the mouse for when it is not in  use. Various other bluetooth and wireless mice have a similar sort of storage setup.

Kind regards,
