There is a compromise, you could use Synergy. It's a program that let's you use one mouse across multiple devices thought you local network(wifi). You will still need a second device to make use of this mouse, but it works like going to a second screen that you can locate to the right or left. I used this back in 2008 to control my MacBook from my gaming rig ...

Add a USB extension cable which can be up to 25 m, put a Bluetooth adapter in it, and string it closer to the meeting room. Not all mice work with all Bluetooth adapters, so you might need to invest in another mouse, and plug its adapter into the extension cable. For that matter, you could even add a Bluetooth keyboard, if you need to access the PC "...

Who expects radios of any sort to work without antennas attached? A better question might be why Wi-Fi worked at all in that state. Wi-Fi uses a lot more transmit power, so it's better able to make up for the extreme attenuation that comes from not having any antenna connected. Not only does Bluetooth use a lot less power, but modern Bluetooth audio uses all ...

Bluetooth tethering is much slower than WIFI. Bluetooth max speed is about 1.7Mb/s in real life. Much slower than a 4G connection witch can easily be at about 30Mb/s or more. Bluetooth use less power. But you can use a USB cable if you want speed but need to avoid draining your phone battery. Both USB 3.0 and WIFI are fast enough for 4G and even 5G mobile ...

No computer genius here and after hours of trying to install/reinstall etc from all solutions above, my solution wound up being that Chrome Remote Desktop messed things up. I removed all rdp .confd files. Everything works again.. Just in case that helps anyone.

The interface shows up as Ethernet because Bluetooth PAN actually imitates Ethernet from the higher layers' point of view – the Bluetooth messages encapsulate whole Ethernet frames (with MAC addresses and such). This means that instead of having to learn a completely new interface type, network tools (and IP itself) can just handle it like a traditional ...

That's a virtual Bluetooth network adapter mimicking Ethernet. If you don't use the Bluetooth networking profile it's disconnected.

Short answer: Yes, it's possible, since both your computer and your printer have an independent power supply and do not require power over the USB cable, but no one is selling such a product at the moment.

Without resetting BIOS I was able to solve the problem. I had the same issue like @Francesco Mantovani. Action Center Bluetooth toggle was missing. Windows Settings didn't have any Bluetooth on/off toggle. Device manager didn't show any Bluetooth devices and 1 USB controller had Device Descriptor Request Failed error I tried updating / removing / ...

I want to send this file to my another pc with anydesk software it takes less than 2 min You say "my other PC". This is a Local Network setup and that is why it can be so fast. The transfer is not going out to the internet. You can get the same speed just by mapping folders locally. That will be fast as well. Internet is not involved here. It ...

Allan's answer no longer works on recent versions of macOS because blueutil is outdated and can't be compiled against modern SDKs. EventScripts is still available though, and instead of blueutil Applescript can be used. I modified some scripts posted on reddit to work: bluetooth_on.scpt tell application "System Events" tell process "...

Turn your Bluetooth mouse off before putting your computer to sleep. Thus, only your trackpad and keyboard (both hard to access while accidentally hitting the table) can wake up your computer from its slumber.

To answer the OP's question, I think the quality issues step from "hands free" audio devices go through a different codec and/or sampling rate. Just set your Windows Default Communication Device as the Stereo headset. For everyone else, coming to this question wondering why your expensive headphones sound terrible for music (including "tinny&...

This happens because Bluetooth 4.2 doesn't support high-quality audio when there's also a microphone active at the same time.1 What basically happens is that the bandwidth available gets cut in half for both audio-in and audio-out, which results in the huge drop in sound quality. There is no real solution for this problem as it is a hardware limitation. ...
