Acer laptop windows 10

Does anyone please know how to connect blue tooth stuff to this computer, the internet explanation is as clear as mud to me.
I would like to connect a blue tooth speaker.
It was so easy to connect to my old Samsung via a bluetooth adaptor.

Hi Jan,

I'm not a Microsoft expert but, I would imagine that with Bluetooth enabled on your computer it would or should pickup your speaker. It would then ask to be connected and accept a 4 digit code that you would enter on your computer.

That is how it used to be. Apologies If this is not correct.

I personally would buy a new MacBook, much better and easier to use.

Hi Drew,
Thanks for answering.
Where would I get this 4 digit code from?
Not paying all that money for Motorhome use only, silly boy.

The Speakers would either have a built in code or possibly a name??.

Your Bluetooth on your computer would have to be enabled.

By holding down a "Pairing Button" on your speaker, your computer will pick the signal and ask you to pair.

You will then have to follow the instructions on your screen.

Not knowing what speaker/s you have I cannot be more specific. There should be a pairing button or you may have to hold down the on/off button for a few seconds.

Do you have any instructions for the speaker/s?

I can´t put my hand on the manual Drew, but found this on t´internet.

6. OPERATING Bluetooth operation E You can connect any Bluetooth source, such as a smartphone or tablet using the Bluetooth standard with this product, in order to reproduce the music stored on such a device via the BEATSMAN, with no need for a cable connection > Switch on the BEATSMAN. The status LED will light up in blue, and blink at short intervals. The BEATSMAN will peep twice. > Start the scan for available devices. The BEATSMAN ap pears under the name „imperial BE

Connecting it to the Mac was simple compared to the Acer. Now whenever I switch the Telestar speaker on it connects immediately.
If I can´t do it soon I will take it to the shop we bought both from, they are always ver helpful, just like you.

It's as Drew said Jan. There should be a button you press on the speaker that puts it into pairing mode but you must make sure that bluetooth is enabled on the laptop - often it's disabled by default. Once you've enabled bluetooth on the laptop then click on the bluetooth icon (or find it in settings) and you should get the invitation to pair.

I am very happy, thank you both so much.
I didn´t know I had to turn on the bluetooth on the computer, that was easy because I can give it verbal instructions.
Once I did that I turned on the speaker held down the mode button and fanny`s me uncle, after about 2 mins all was set up and I can listen to music through a decent speaker.

Next problem, I can´t keep the language preferences on English with German keyboard, any idea´s? Every time I turn the PC off next time its on I have an English keyboard which gives me the wrong letters i.e my `Y`´is the English Z I have to physically change it on the bottom bar or it tells you I am verz happz.

I found the above, maybe it will point you in the right direction.

Just to show you how clever I am (big smile)
I have connected an Apple keyboard to the Acer blue tooth as well as the speaker.
Apple are always different, the @ sign is in a different place so I have to press alt & Q to get the @ sign on the Acer.
The keyboard stays on German all the time now.
I know how to remove the need to put in my pin number when opening up, but they say its safer to keep the pin so I will.
The brain is still alive and working.
