For example, if I wanted to grab this picture from my phone and move it to the computer, I could select it here and then I have two different options I can use up here. One is to send that file to the Bluetooth exchange folder. If I come down here and open up my settings for my Bluetooth adapterand then click the Share button, as you can see the Bluetooth exchange folder location is located in My Documents directory and within Documents a subfolder called Bluetooth exchange folder and I turned on the option to allow the remote devices to send and receive data to this

location. So let's select this file and click on Send to Bluetooth Exchange Folder and when I do it's copied over to that subfolder of My Documents directory on this system. Another option is to just simply select the file right-click, click on Copy and then go to the location where I want to store that file. For example, I could go over here to pictures, right-click, Paste and the file is copied from my phone over to my pictures library. Let's go ahead and close this folder. There's one other thing I want to show you before we end this demonstration and that's the authorization options down here. If I expand this I have two selections that I can pick from. One requires the conformation for all operations to and from this Bluetooth device. In other words if I were to copy say 10 files off of my phone, I'd have to authorize each and every file transfer. In some situations that's appropriate, it's the default setting. But it can also get really annoying if you have a lot of files that you're moving back and forth. In which case you could use this option to always allow the device to connect for all operations, meaning that you won't have to authorize every single one.I'll apply that here and also go on my phone and do the same thing because you have to configure both ends of the connection. So at this point I've copied the file off from my phone that I wanted so I'm done working with it. Disconnect and Secure Bluetooth 8:08-9:29 So I need to disconnect it from this system so I'm going to come down here to my Notification area,I'm going to right-click on my Bluetooth icon and click on Show Bluetooth Devices. I find my phone, I click on it and I click Remove Device and, yes, I do want to remove the device. This will effectively kill the connection between the two devices. Alright and the phone has been removed from my list of Bluetooth devices. So the last thing I want to do before we end this demonstration is re- secure the system. I don't want this system to remain discoverable over a Bluetooth connection. Now on a desktop system is this a crisis? Not as much, it represents a smaller security risk. But on a notebook system or on a phone or a tablet, it's actually a big deal because if I take my notebook system, say to an airport and I'm sitting there working on something while I'm waiting for a plane and my Bluetooth adapter is on and

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
