Bluetooth manual on & off windows 7

Hi,

I'm using the T500 & just installed windows 7.

I'm trying to manually turn the bluetooth adfapter on and off (without turning the wifi).

Fn F5 is a bad option since I mostly work with my notepad closed (docking station)

 

In Vista, I right clicked the bluetooth icon in the icon tray and then pressed the turn adapter off / on.

Thanks

Re: Bluetooth manual on & off windows 7

Isn't that option available in Win 7 also? It is on a Y530 I am

using. If you can't see the icon, check the Notification Area

settings to always show bluetooth icon.

 

Or the BT settings panel, check box Show BT Icon.

(Control Panel, Devices, Blutooth- I think)

Hi,

The BT icon is shown in the icon tray.

 

The problem is that when I right click it - there is no optoin to disable/inable the BT.

 

Thanks

Maybe because of driver differences?

 

I looked around on mine, and saw no obvious changes that

would reproduce the conditions on your laptop.

Re: Bluetooth manual on & off windows 7

start > type "msconfig" in search bar > services > uncheck "bluetooth" > click ok

after reboot should be off
