Installing Bluetooth

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to install whatever combination of h/w and s/w I need to establish a connection with a with a wireless Bluetooth headset, but have not been able to determine whether it's possible or how to do it.  Help from anyone who's done it, or knows how to, will be appreciated.  Thanks, Guy_

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the product specs page for your PC.

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-p6-2100-desktop-pc-series/5187028/model/5261833/doc...

 

It does not come with built in bluetooth networking...only ethernet and wireless.

 

The easiest thing to do to add bluetooth networking capability to your PC would be to purchase an external usb bluetooth adapter.

 

I use this one on one of my HP desktop PC's .  Works just fine.

Thanks, Paul.  This is the kind of answer I was expecting, and thanks for the specific steer.  That particular adapter can't be shipped to the UK, but I will get this one, which is s version lower but looks as if it will do the job: https://www.amazon.com/Kinivo-BTD-400-Bluetooth-4-0-USB/dp/B007Q45EF4
