I managed to somehow remove Bluetooth from my system a laptop windows 10 software wise by uninstalling the driver 2 times-once when it was showing in device manager and once after showing in hidden section of device manager and now the system does not have Bluetooth. and I am unable to fix it. i was frustrated because the blue tooth's persisting issues. if someone at Microsoft can help me, i be most welcomed PS I have rested my pc hoping it would solve the problem but no luck there. if these a code or something or some executable share with me. I disclose I have done many online things to repair software wise. Bluetooth removed from system completely, gone, poof.

    HI GaurangGupta-6323,

    It seems that you don't want a Bluetooth in your laptop, right?

    The challenge is that your laptop has an inbuilt WLAN adaptor card, which works for both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. If you try to remove a Bluetooth driver from device manager, it will take back a missing driver after a restart automatically, that is how it is designed.

    This is what you can try.
    by using a PowerShell command as admin: "Disable-NetAdapter "Bluetooth Network Connection 3"

    Or simply by turning off Bluetooth from settings.

    On the other hand, if you want to completely get rid Bluetooth, ask your OEM to take off an inbuilt WLAN adaptor card from your machine and you can use a separate Wi-Fi adaptor for your laptop which doesn't support a Bluetooth function.

    Please update your findings or re-frame your question.
