    Hi guys,

    I have a Microsoft bluetooth dongle that came as part of the wireless mouse & keyboard set. When i connect the dongle to my pc, it gets installed & the keyboard and mouse work fine.
    BUT i cannot locate the device for the dongle on my PC. In windows XP the dongle appeared as a bluetooth device in control panels but i can't see this in windows 7. I looked under control panel -> hardware & sounds bbut there is no option for bluetooth listed there. I checked the devices but it's not there either.

    I want to connect my phone & a different bluetooth keyboard to my PC and so need to find the bluetooth options in Win 7.

    As mentioned above, the bluetooth dongle is a Micrsoft one and came as part of the Microsoft Entertainment Desktop 7000 Keyboard & Mouse. It should pick up other bluetooth devices but i need to figure out where the bluetooth settings are in windows 7.

    Can anyone help?

    Regards,

    Shuja
