My newer type computer, which is windows 10, has bluetooth capabilities.   But my older windows 7 acer computer does not.     i was wondering if there is any possability for bluetooth to happen on my windows 7 computer?

 

Thank you and have a nice day.   :)

If you are willing to have something sticking out of your PC, then yes. Search "USB Bluetooth Dongle". That should give you a variety of USB bluetooth options you can buy.

Then that is probably what you want. If you are having difficulty finding these on your own, or would like clarification on the marketing terms companies use, please feel free to reply asking for help :)

A good while ago I used Bluetooth on my Windows XP Laptop using a dongle and software that came with it. It worked fine, better so far than the built in Bluetooth on my Windows 10.

Indeed a dongle is the best way to do this, I rather like my pluggable branded one :D
