Like traditional Internet connections, Bluetooth allows you to send a file from one electronic device to another. Unlike other connections, Bluetooth works only with short-range connections, meaning the two devices must be in the same area. Windows Vista uses a Bluetooth Wizard to send and receive files from one device to another. Though newer versions of Windows situates the Wizard in the control panel, Vista situates the Wizard in the accessories menu.
