HP Pavilion computers run on the Windows operating system. The process you take to turn on Bluetooth on a HP Pavilion is the same process you would follow to turn a Bluetooth device on any Windows-based computer. Bluetooth devices can come in a variety of forms. Some Bluetooth devices are as simple as a wireless mouse or headphones. However, HP Pavilion users also can use Bluetooth connections to connect with devices like Bluetooth-enabled printers and scanners.
