Some Lenovo laptops include a dedicated Bluetooth button, but the ThinkPad W510 has the Bluetooth function buried under a sub-menu. You can access the sub-menu using the keyboard. Once Bluetooth is enabled, you can pair the ThinkPad W510 with a variety of Bluetooth devices, including headsets and cell phones. Bluetooth does drain the battery faster; however, so the user should only enable it when they are ready to use it to conserve battery power.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Locate the function key on the keyboard. It is on the bottom left and marked "Fn."

  2. 2

    Hold down the "Fn" key.

  3. 3

    Press the F5 key to open the Wireless Connection Manager screen.

  4. 4

    Click the "Radio On" button next to Bluetooth Radio to enable Bluetooth.

Tips and warnings

  • If the Wireless Connection Manager will not open, download the latest Bluetooth drivers from the Lenovo site. You can find the link in Resources.
