Bluetooth is a short range wireless technology which enables wireless data transmission between two Bluetooth enabled devices located nearby each other.

There are many different types of Bluetooth enabled devices you can add and pair to your PC, such as mobile phones, wireless headsets, speakers, fitness trackers, mouse, keyboard, etc...

If you no longer want the Bluetooth device connected to your Windows 11 PC, you can remove it.

If the Bluetooth device is paired, but not connected or working, you could try to remove and pair the device again.

This tutorial will show you how to remove a Bluetooth device in Windows 11.


Here's How:

1 Open Settings (Win+I).

2 Click/tap on Bluetooth & devices on the left side. (see screenshots below step 4 and 5)


3 Turn on Bluetooth if not already.

4 If the Bluetooth device (ex: "HP Tilt Pen") is listed at the top, click/tap on its More options (3 dots) button, click/tap on Remove device, and go to step 6. (see screenshot below)

Some other methods that might help some people if they cannot re-pair after removing Bluetooth devices from Settings, Devices, Bluetooth:-

1 Right-click on the device in Control panel, Devices & printers then select Remove device

2 Use Bluetooth command line tools to remove individual or all paired devices.
- There is a discussion of finding the correct Mac address for removing individual devices with Bluetooth command line tools - see Can't remove paired bluetooth devices [post #5 & later ones] - TenForums

3 Steps to completely remove a bluetooth device so pairing can be done again [post #22, KeithM] - TenForums

4 Steps to completely remove a bluetooth device so pairing can be done again [post #39, Bungee] - TenForums

Some people have reported that one method worked but others did not. I have never found a decent explanation for such variation in experiences.

All the best,
Denis
