Each time i boot my window, it also starts bluetooth by default. I dont use it much frequently. Is there any option by which my bluetooth does not come up by default on startup. I am using samsung laptop, window 7 OS.

Click Start; Type msconfig; Click Startup; Uncheck the blootooth device/ application from there. Hope you are good to go.

Yuck. MSConfig is intended for temporary use for diagnosing problems, not turning things on and off instead of dealing with it properly. :) – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Apr 18 '12 at 13:12

I rarely use bluetooth on my Win 7 laptop so I just disable it in the device manager. It only takes a few seconds to enable it again when I need it.

Click Start > Type Control Panel > click control panel > then click System > on the left side click Device Manager

Your bluetooth module will be in there under bluetooth radios; just right-click and choose disable. Repeat the steps to enable when you need it.

This is a good solution. I have bluetooth speakers and every time I wake my computer, it steals the connection from my wife's kindle. It was kind of funny at first, but quickly became annoying. This is much better as I can simply enable it when I want to use the speakers, without yanking it when I don't want it. – Wyrmwood Feb 18 '14 at 16:15
Win7 has a taskbar widget that you can use now. Makes turning bluetooth on and off take seconds. – skub Mar 7 '14 at 2:50
