Bluetooth has become increasingly essential in recent years not because it offers accessibility and portability but because it eliminates the necessity of wires for cleaner setups. From old generation computers to latest laptops, most of the devices offer the capability of connecting other Bluetooth devices like speakers and headphones. Before you can experience the functionality, you must know how to enable Bluetooth on Windows 11.

Windows 11 allows you to turn on Bluetooth either from Settings app and quick action in Action Center. If you can’t find the Bluetooth quick action then you can manually add it there. Both methods are pretty easygoing and require only a few clicks.
