How to Send a Wireless Signal from a Computer to Speakers


Connecting speakers to your computer wirelessly can help eliminate clutter from your workspace, and the advent of Bluetooth speakers makes wireless audio a reality for any computer with Bluetooth functionality. If you have a pair of Bluetooth-enabled speakers, you can configure your Windows computer to transmit an audio signal wirelessly to those speakers via the Change PC Settings screen.

  • Turn on your Bluetooth speakers and set them so that they are discoverable. How you do this will vary depending on the make and model of the speakers. Some Bluetooth speakers automatically become discoverable as soon as you turn them on. Others require you to press and hold a button. Consult the speakers' documentation for more information.

  • Move your mouse to the top-right or bottom-right corner of your computer screen to display the Windows 8 Charms bar.

  • Click "Settings" and then click "Change PC Settings."

  • Click "Add A Device."

  • Click the name of your Bluetooth speakers in the Devices pane.

  • Enter your speakers' passcode and then click the "Pair" button. Consult your speakers' manual to find the passcode.

Tips & Warnings

  • Speakers should be kept within 30 or so feet from the computer to ensure audio transmission.
  • Information in this article applies to computers running the Windows 8 operating system. It may vary slightly or significantly with other versions or products.
