Bluetooth devices are a convenient way to connect and use various devices with your computer. However, sometimes the default names assigned to these devices can be confusing or unrecognizable. Luckily, Windows 10 allows you to easily rename your bluetooth devices to something more meaningful and personalized. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to rename a bluetooth device on windows 10.

Accessing Bluetooth Settings

Before we can rename a bluetooth device, we need to access the bluetooth settings on our Windows 10 computer. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Windows icon in the bottom left corner of your screen.
  2. Type “Bluetooth” in the search bar and select “Bluetooth and other devices settings” from the results.
  3. This will open the Bluetooth settings window.

Finding the Device to Rename

In the Bluetooth settings window, you will see a list of all the devices that are currently connected or have been connected to your computer. Scroll through the list and find the device that you want to rename. If the device is not currently connected, make sure it is turned on and in range of your computer.

Renaming the Device

Once you have located the device you want to rename, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the device name to select it.
  2. Click on the “More options” button (three dots) next to the device name.
  3. Select “Rename” from the drop-down menu.
  4. A pop-up window will appear, allowing you to enter a new name for the device.
  5. Type in the new name and click “Save”.

Confirming the Change

After you have renamed the device, you will see the new name displayed in the Bluetooth settings window. To confirm the change, you can also check the device itself to see if the new name is displayed. If the device is currently connected, you may need to disconnect and reconnect it for the new name to appear.

Tips for Renaming Bluetooth Devices

  • Keep the name short and simple. This will make it easier to recognize and remember.
  • Use a descriptive name that will help you identify the device. For example, “Wireless Mouse” or “Bluetooth Headphones”.
  • Avoid using special characters or spaces in the name, as this may cause issues with connectivity.
  • If you have multiple devices of the same type, consider adding a number at the end of the name to differentiate them. For example, “Wireless Mouse 1” and “Wireless Mouse 2”.


Renaming a bluetooth device on Windows 10 is a simple and useful way to personalize your computer and make it easier to manage your devices.
