If you need to connect a Bluetooth device to your Windows 10 or Windows 11 PC, then you would need to dive into the settings to do so. This is fine since usually we connect a device and leave it as it is, like a Bluetooth keyboard or mouse or speaker. However, if you tend to connect and remove Bluetooth devices frequently, having to dive into the settings can be troublesome.
However, there is some good news for Bluetooth users. Microsoft has announced an upcoming update to Windows 11 that will make Bluetooth easier to access and connect. This is because Microsoft will be adding enhanced Bluetooth controls to Windows 11’s Quick Settings.
According to Microsoft, “We are beginning to roll out the ability to more easily manage your Bluetooth devices directly within Quick Settings, including the ability to connect, disconnect, and see battery level for supported devices.” Right now, the feature should be available for Insiders to test out themselves as it appears to have been enabled server-side.
This means that for those not part of the Insider program, you’ll have to wait for the official update to be released in order to test it out, so hopefully the update isn’t too far off from its public release.
