How to Pair Bluetooth on a Toshiba

by Matthew Fortuna

With wireless technology taking over the world, Bluetooth capabilities are being added to devices of every medium. First appearing on cellular phones and mobile devices, wireless Bluetooth has been expanded to laptop computers. Among the computer manufacturers offering Bluetooth, Toshiba has made its laptops able to accommodate this wireless feature through a small USB adaptor that plugs directly into the computer. The Toshiba adaptor utilizes the same technology as cell phone Bluetooth, and has only to be activated on your computer for it to be paired with nearby devices.
