Generate Pairing Code from Windows 7 for Bluetooth Connection


What is that number that displayed to me when I am trying to connect to another Bluetooth computer from my Windows 7 system?



The number you see when you try to connect to another Bluetooth device is the Bluetooth pairing code that you must use to confirm and finish the Bluetooth connection. If you want to generate a Bluetooth pairing code and use it to confirm a Bluetooth connection, you can follow these steps:

1. Turn on the Bluetooth radio on your old computer and configure it to allow others to discover its Bluetooth device.

2. Turn on the Bluetooth radio on your new Windows 7 computer.

3. Go to "Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Devices and Printers" and click "Add a device".

4. Wait for your old computer to show up and double click it. You will see a Bluetooth pairing code showing up together with the following message:

Compare Pairing codes between your computer and this device

This will verify that you are connecting to the correct device.


Does the code above match the code on the device:
[x] Yes
[ ] No
[ ] The device is not displaying a code
