Ricky Gilliland February 23, 2015 Didn’t work on mine. John Parker February 23, 2015 Yes, Jay, It worked just great. Thank you!!! jrodrig9212 February 23, 2015 it worked!! Thanks a lot! :) Brian Thorn February 23, 2015 That didn’t work for me. There is not and never has been a Bluetooth device attached to this computer, so turning on Bluetooth Support Services made no difference whatsoever. Anyone have any other ideas why Devices and Printers hangs perpetually? I added a second printer to this computer, but now Devices and Printers refuses to open so I cannot change any printer settings. RajaSekhar Varigonda February 23, 2015 Hi, The enabling of BlueTooth service opened the Devices and Printers dialog even though I was connecting my Printer using USB. Thanks a ton for your video. Ricky Simmons February 23, 2015 I developed this problem and was shocked to actually find a solution that worked. I would caution people to watch the entire video before trying it. I did it wrong the first time but fortunately watched the whole video again and it solved my problem. So Mr Busch, you my friend are a genius. Thanks Stephen Newing February 23, 2015 This worked like a dream, thanks. Abdalla Alali February 23, 2015 thanks alot, worked like charm Barry Merlo February 23, 2015 Worked beautifully even on Win8. Showed Bluetooth was on already but it was on manuel so I switched to automatic. Perfect Thanks John Hughes February 23, 2015 Thanks for the great tip which has worked a treat. I was having a problem safely removing a USB hard drive – clicking on the icon did nothing. One of the microsoft forums suggested a way to get around this problem was to do it via devices and printers – which is when I found I was unable to load this page. By starting the bluetooth services as you suggested, I have cured both problems. Thanks again. Paul Pișta February 23, 2015 thanks, dude ;) Mladen Tapavički February 23, 2015 This worked for me, and additionally, it enabled my Windows to automatically start detecting my Dualshock 4 when I put it in pairing mode.
