How to Add / Connect Bluetooth Mouse on a Windows 10 PC

When you try to add or Connect Bluetooth Mouse on a Windows 10 PC. It constantly fails to connect to your computer.

I will be showing you how to connect a Bluetooth mouse to use on your Windows 10 PC or laptop.

If your mouse doesn’t come with a USB dongle, then you need to make sure that your PC has Bluetooth capabilities. 

This could be built in or you might need a Bluetooth dongle for it to work. If your mouse does come with its own dongle, then it should connect automatically without you having to go into the Bluetooth settings. 

Add / Connect Bluetooth Mouse

The first thing we need to do is make sure that Bluetooth is turned on, on our PC. 

To do this, go to the main settings page by clicking on the cog icon within the start menu.

Connect Bluetooth Mouse

In settings, choose Devices.

The next page should be the Bluetooth settings, but if it isn’t, choose Bluetooth and other devices from the options on the left side. 

In here, turn Bluetooth on at the top if it isn’t on already. 

Now choose the plus icon to the left of where it says add Bluetooth or other device. On this page, choose Bluetooth which should be the top option. 

Your PC will now start scanning for devices so make sure your mouse is powered on and if it has a pair button, press that now. 

Connect Bluetooth Mouse

Your mouse should appear on the list and all you need to do is select it and then it should connect automatically. 

Once it’s connected, it should appear in the mouse, keyboard and pen section, where you can remove it from in the future if you want. 

If you run into any problems when trying to connect your mouse, then go back to the main settings page and this time choose update and security. 

Now click on troubleshoot from the options on the left side and scroll down in here until you find the option called Bluetooth. 

Click on it once and then run the troubleshooter. 

Allow Windows to find and fix any problems it finds. 

And so that is how to connect a Bluetooth mouse to use on your Windows 10 PC or laptop.

This will work on tablets too. You can also follow this video to connect any type of audio output device, such as a Bluetooth speaker.

Just make sure that the device you want to connect isn’t currently connected to another device.

If you tap on Bluetooth, you should be in the Bluetooth settings. First, turn on Bluetooth in here and now make sure your audio device that you want to connect is turned on and ready to pair.

You may need to press a pair button on the device itself for this.

Look for your device in the available devices section, if you don’t see it try tapping on scan on your phone. Tap on it when it appears, and then tap on OK.

Depending on your device, you may need to confirm the pairing on the device itself. The device should now appear on the paired devices list on your phone.

It should now be connected, but you might be able to tap on it or on the cog icon next to it to change some of the settings.
