CONNECT A BLUETOOTH SPEAKER TO THE PC: ADD AN EXTERNAL BT MODULE (USB OR JACK)
If the motherboard of your laptop or desktop is already equipped with a Bluetooth device then proceed to the next step. Otherwise, nothing is lost.

To connect a Bluetooth speaker to a Windows 10 computer it’s easy, just need a few steps as below:
1. Make sure the computer has Bluetooth
First, make sure first if your computer has a Blue tooth (BT) connection, if it’s not there it’s useless
If you have a laptop, it is likely that you have Bluetooth already. But if you have a desktop PC, then there’s probably no BT, and you have to buy Bluetooth Dongle first. The price is around 50 thousand, can be cheaper or expensive depending on quality.
2. Turn on the Bluetooth Speaker Device
The second stage is to turn on the Bluetooth speaker and set it in pairing mode. For how to enter this mode, you read in your Bluetooth manual speaker.
If you are using Chinese Bluetooth Speakers that are sold on the market, then usually after you turn on the speaker, it’s automatically in pairing mode, so you don’t have to do anything else.
Unlike the case, if you use a Bluetooth Headset brand Sony, LG, etc. Usually, there is a need to enter settings to activate pairing mode. Open the manual guide you read in the pairing section.
3. Open the Bluetooth menu on the Computer
Activate the Bluetooth menu on your PC/Laptop:
Look in the Toolbar section at the bottom right of the screen Click the Bluetooth Logo Click “Add a Bluetooth Device”
Click the Bluetooth Icon on the Toolbar
If you don’t find the Bluetooth logo on the toolbar, do the following:
- Press the Windows Logo Button + the S button on the keyboard SEARCH menu will appear
- Type: Bluetooth in the search field
- Wait for the search results to finish and then click: Bluetooth Settings
