How to Receive Multiple Files Via Bluetooth on Vista

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.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Click on the "Start" menu and select "Control Panel." Press the "Hardware and Sound" icon, then the "Bluetooth Devices" icon. Press the "Add" button and follow the onscreen instructions. Make sure your device is turned on and that Bluetooth is enabled.

  2. 2

    Press the Windows button on the keyboard and scroll to "All Programs."

  3. 3

    Click on the "Accessories" line, then select "Bluetooth Wizard."

  4. 4

    Press the button that reads "Next," then select "Receive a File." Press "Next" again.

  5. 5

    Open the menu of the device you wish to use to send files. Select the Bluetooth or Connectivity settings. The exact name and location of this setting varies by cell phone make and model.

  6. 6

    Scroll to the appropriate file or folder and select "Send." Once the file has sent, scroll to another file and select "Send."
