I have upgraded my computer to Windows 8.1 Pro from 8 but get problems in wirelessly exchanging files with mobile. When I try to use bluetooth to transfer pictures and video to my Android phone, it is fail. The same problem also happens with receiving files. I disable the antivirus and firewall temporarily, re-pair, and install the up-to-date driver, and nothing takes any effects. How to fix the issues?
The biuld-in bluetooth file transfer feature might stop working in Windows 8.1 after upgraded or make a refresh. And “Send Files” and “Receive Files” options are missing in the menu from system tray. You could try any of the following tips to reoslve the peoblem.
* Make sure the adapter’s hardware is compatibility with your tablet or PC.
* Run Windows Update and go to manufacturer’s support website to get the related software.
* Open File Explorer and access the location
%windir%\system32\fsquirt.exe. Or search “fsquirt” from Start Screen. Then choose “send files” or “Recieve Files” option as you need. Works for me.
* Press WIN key, type task and hit Enter. Click More details, and select the Startup tab. Disable “btmshellex” entry (a common BT utility), enable it again and then make a re-booting.
* Roll back to install the older Win 8′s driver.
