    Bluetooth always ON in Dell laptop with Windows OS

    The Bluetooth connectivity of my Dell laptop with Windows OS seems to be always in the ON mode. How can I configure the settings so as to make it visible ON only when I need that?

    All Dell laptops have bluetooth Key on keyboard

    When you press it once , bluetooth will be ON , pressing again will stop the bluetooth services.

    So, regarding your query ,if your bluetooth always remain ON, then there may be problem with Key.
    YOu can stop bluetooth services from task manager also.

    Open the task manager by pressing " CTRL + SHIFT + ESC "



    Now under the Process tab, find the program " BTTray.exe " , right click it & close the program.

    Now if you want to restart the bluetooth :->

    Go to Start , type "Bluetooth" , click on the link , bluetooth in ON now.

    dear friend,

    all dell laptops are configured with bluetooth key.

    you have to press F2 key once to enable/disable bluetooth.

    if you can't disable it,it means that the key has some problem.

    you have to turn it off manually from task manager.

    go to the process tab on the task manager window.

    select the BTTray.exe option.



    right click on it & choose End Process Tree option.

    it will turn off the bluetooth.
