How to Change Bluetooth Device Name on Windows 10 PC

When you connect a Bluetooth device to Windows 10, the operating system displays that device with its default name set by the manufacturer. Generally, the default name is good enough in most cases. However, if the default name is confusing or when you have multiple Bluetooth devices with the same name, renaming the Bluetooth device is pretty helpful. In this tutorial, we’ll show you a simple way to change a Bluetooth device’s name on Windows 10. Let’s get started.

Steps to Change Bluetooth Device Name

On Windows 10, you can use the Control Panel to rename any Bluetooth device you want. Here are the steps you must follow:

First, search and open the Control Panel from the Start menu. After opening it, click on the Devices and Printers option. If you cannot see it, Set View By on the top-right corner to Large icons.

open Devices and Printers in Control Panel

In the Devices and Printers screen, right-click on the Bluetooth device you want to rename and select the Properties option.

Right-click on the Bluetooth device and select properties to open Bluetooth device properties

Go to the Bluetooth tab. Type a name of your choice in the top field and push the OK button to save changes.

enter a new name in the top field and click ok to rename the Bluetooth device on Windows 10

After that, disconnect and reconnect the Bluetooth device to see the new name on the Devices and Printers page, Settings app, and any other places where Windows displays the Bluetooth device name.

Bluetooth device name changed

Keep in mind that if you unpair the Bluetooth device or update its device driver, the name might revert to its default depending on how the device manufacturer implemented the naming scheme. If the name reverts, follow the same steps to set a new name for your Bluetooth device.

Windows 11 users, follow these steps.


If you cannot see your Bluetooth device in the Devices and Printers screen, it might not be connected to the system. Make sure the Bluetooth device is paired and connected correctly.

If you cannot rename a wireless device, either it is not a Bluetooth device or the device manufacturer locked the name. For instance, some wireless devices come with their own 2.4 GHz USB receiver dongle. Those devices are not Bluetooth and may not allow you to change the device name.

And there you have it! It’s that simple to rename any Bluetooth device you want on Windows 10.
