I. Make sure Bluetooth on your Surface is ON:

  1. Open the Settings charm, and then tap on Settings gear.

II. Add your Bluetooth device:

  • Tap on Devices (in PC settings).
  • Tap on Add a device.

  • Select your Bluetooth device from the list of wireless devices.

  • If the accessory requires a passcode, you’ll be prompted for it. If you don’t know it, check the info that came with your device.
