How to enable Bluetooth on an Asus laptop is a fairly common question. The fact is that one of the advantages of laptops is Bluetooth (a means of wireless connection). Although it is available by default, it is not always available. Sometimes users simply cannot enable it.
It would seem that there is nothing easier. I pressed the right key and everything is ready, but not so simple. For the adapter to work, drivers must be installed on the computer that control it. But, they are not always installed. over, often people buy laptops without a pre-installed operating system, such as Windows. This means that you need to install the OS yourself and install the necessary drivers.
Therefore, before proceeding with how to enable Bluetooth on an Asus laptop, you should install the software.
It is very easy to do. You just need to visit the official Asus website, in the "Support" section (https://www.asus.com/en/support/). In the search bar, indicate the model of your laptop (for example, k50ab). The system will find it and offer you several options for further actions:
- Knowledge base.
- Drivers and Utilities.
Choose the option you need (in our case, this is the driver). Now you need to select the version of the operating system. Indicate the one that is installed on your laptop. After that, you will be offered a list of programs and utilities suitable specifically for your computer and for the specified OS. You just have to choose the right software, download and install it. Now we can move on to the question of how to turn on the Bluetooth module on an Asus laptop.

After installing the drivers and activating the adapter, the corresponding icon will appear in the system tray (lower right corner of the desktop). If you right-click on it, a menu will appear in which you can perform the following actions:
- Add device.
- Show available connections (devices).
- Join a personal area network (PAN).

A little lower you can specify the path to the folder in which the received data will be saved. Now you know not only how to turn it on, but also how to set up a Bluetooth connection on an Asus laptop. There is nothing complicated here.
