Trying to transfer files TO my HP Notepad via Bluetooth

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi there,


I recently acquired my HP notepad (serial No, removed content)  and would like to transfer files to it via Bluetooth from a mobile phone. Do I require a dongle to do this, as every time I try this, the files fail to send?


And if I do require a dongle, what sort do I need, what is compatible?


Many thanks in advance

I gather that you are trying to transfer files from your phone to the HP notebook via Bluetooth but have not been successful You inquired about using a dongle or if you need one. If one is required, yes you could use a dongle. When I know what your exact product is, I can check if the notebook has Bluetooth. If you open Device Manager is Bluetooth listed? If it does support Bluetooth here is a link that may help. HP PCs - Using Bluetooth Devices (Windows 10, 😎.  Please keep me updated on your progress.
