How to Turn on Bluetooth on an HP Pavilion

Updated February 21, 2017

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.
