I have been having some issues where my Bluetooth is not functioning correctly on my windows 10 device. I have probably accidentally clicked Airplane Mode and that can result in a well-known glitch whereby the Bluetooth services themselves are disabled and not necessarily turned back on. This also results in the Bluetooth icon to disappear from the settings.

The conventional wisdom for this error is to open up Microsoft services and turning on any services that may pertain to Bluetooth. I.e:

Windows Key + R > services.msc

Question: While I have nothing against the above approach, but I was hoping that I could run some command(s) from the shell itself to turn on the relevant services instead of pointing and clicking amidst the hundreds of services. Is there such a method?

    You mean like net start <Bluetooth-service-name>? – Twisty Impersonator Mar 29 '18 at 12:08
