When we have to connect two laptops for a short duration of time to transfer files, we can do that using Bluetooth. It requires both the laptops to be present nearby so that they are within the range of coverage. This comes in handy while travelling as we do not need to have cables to connect the systems. In this article let us discuss how t connect two Windows 10 PCs with bluetooth.
Steps to be followed to Connect two systems with Bluetooth :
Step 1: Open the Run window pressing Windows+r simulatneously.
Step 2: Type ms-settings:bluetooth and hit Enter
