How to Sync a Bluetooth Headset With a PC
By Christopher Kennedy
A Bluetooth headset allows for a wireless connection to your computer and can be configured to work with many VoIP and video conferencing providers. Once a computer and headset have been synced to work together, they can be connected at a later date by turning on the headset when in range of your computer.
Power on your Bluetooth headset and put it in "Pairing Mode." Refer to the headset's instruction manual for the correct way to place your device in pairing mode.
Click "My Bluetooth Places" located on your desktop or in the "My Computer" or "Computer" menu.
Select "Find Nearby Bluetooth Devices." Alternatively, you can right-click on the Bluetooth icon located in the system tray and select it from the list of options.
Click your Bluetooth device in the window that appears. Right-click on the icon and select "Pair Device" from the list of options. You will be prompted to enter a password for the headset. If you have never set one up, the default password is "0000."
Ciick "OK" to sync the device with your computer and the pairing process will be complete. In most cases, the device will automatically connect to the computer for immediate use. If it does not, right-click on the headset's icon in "My Bluetooth Places" and select "Connect.' Alternatively, use the "Quick Connect" feature of the Bluetooth icon in the system tray.
