Bluetooth Driver Installer is a utility for Windows that can find, install and configure the device driver your computer needs to communicate with your Bluetooth device.

Bluetooth Driver Installer is a Windows utility and the kind of program you use once when you need it and then forget about. That said, it can help casual users avoid a lot of inconvenience when a smartphone or other Bluetooth device isn’t recognized by your PC desktop or laptop. The program is standalone and doesn’t require installation. Simply run the program from an extracted folder.

When you run Bluetooth Driver Installer, it will identify any existing drivers and remove them. Then, it will install the latest base Bluetooth driver for Windows. Drivers are programs that tell Windows how to communicate with devices. The basic Bluetooth driver for Windows supports the core Bluetooth standard. Some devices may have advanced features that require a customized driver, and those drivers can cause problems with Windows. This program seeks to overcome those issues, but it’s worth pointing out that if you wanted any of those special features, they may not be available.

This program doesn’t do anything you couldn’t do yourself through Windows, and if you’re an experienced user, that may be preferable. Nevertheless, fussing with drivers may be something the casual user wants to avoid, and this program allows for that. Bluetooth Driver Installer is quite user-friendly and it works fast and in safe manner when it works at all. It will work for most, but there can be compatibility issues depending on your Windows environment.

The good news is that if Bluetooth Driver Installer isn’t compatible with your setup, it shouldn’t cause any harm. There’s of course always the chance for an issue when dealing with device drivers, but this program automatically creates a Windows restore point if that Windows mechanism is enabled. If something does happen, you can simply have Windows revert to that restore point. Bluetooth Driver Installer can even do that for you, which makes the entire process really hands off.

Pros

  • Helps many Bluetooth devices just work
  • Automatically creates a restore point

Cons

  • PC compatibility can be unreliable
