Bluetooth transfer is very handy when you want to exchange files between mobile phones and computers. Almost all smartphones and computers are Bluetooth enabled. To transfer files and documents between mobile phone and computer via Bluetooth, you do not need a USB data cable, no internet or Wi-Fi router required. What you need to do is to enable Bluetooth on both mobile phone and computer, then pair the phone to computer and transfer files between them. In this post, we will use a Lenovo mobile phone and a Windows 10 PC to show you how to do it.

To turn on Bluetooth in Windows 10, click the Start menu, choose Settings >> Devices >> Bluetooth, then click the toggle to enable Bluetooth on your PC.
Except that, click the More Bluetooth Options from above screen, then click Options, we recommend you to enable all the three options under this tab including:

- Show the Bluetooth icon in the notification area.
