Step 1: Make sure your laptop / desktop computer has a Bluetooth module
The first important step is to make sure the laptop / desktop has a Bluetooth module. Some laptop / desktop might not come with this hardware. Check the manual of your laptop / desktop on the availability of the Bluetooth module.

By entering pairing mode, you make the device you want to connect to your laptop or desktop computer discoverable.
The steps to enter pairing mode may vary depending on the device you want to connect (headphones, speakers, smartphone, etc.).

- However, the second time you pair it, you will have to press and hold the pairing mode button for 7 seconds.
