On Windows 11
  • Launch the Settings app by pressing Windows+i. In the left sidebar, select “Bluetooth & Devices.” On the right pane, choose “Devices.”
  • Locate the device you want to remove on the Devices page, then click the three dots next to it and choose “Remove Device.”
  • Under your device’s name, you’ll see a “Removing Device” message. This message will disappear once Windows has deleted the device.
On Windows 10
  • Open Settings by pressing Windows+i. Select “Devices” in Settings.
  • From the left sidebar, choose “Bluetooth & Other Devices.”
  • On the right pane, find and click the device to remove. Then, choose “Remove Device.”
  • In the open prompt, select “Yes.”
Remove Bluetooth Devices with Device Manager
  • If you can’t remove a device from Settings or you want to remove the device and delete its associated drivers, use this method.
  • Open the Device Manager utility by right-clicking the Start Menu and selecting “Device Manager.”
  • On the utility window, expand “Bluetooth.” Find the device to remove, right-click it, and select “Uninstall Device.”
  • In the open prompt, choose “Uninstall.”
Remove Bluetooth Devices Using Command Prompt

If you prefer using command line methods over graphical ones, you can use a command in Command Prompt (or PowerShell) to remove the paired Bluetooth devices from your PC. This method achieves the same result as the graphical methods above.

  • To use this method, you’ll first find your device’s instance path. The command that deletes the devices requires this path to identify your device. To find it, open Device Manager by pressing Windows+X and choosing “Device Manager.”
  • Expand “Bluetooth,” right-click the device you want to delete, and select “Properties.”
  • On the Properties window, open the “Details” tab. Click the “Property” drop-down menu and select “Device Instance Path.” This is the second option in the menu.
  • Right-click the text displayed in the “Value” field and select “Copy.”
  • Close Device Manager. Open the Start Menu, search for “Command Prompt”, and select “Run as Administrator.”
  • In the User Account Control (UAC) prompt, select “Yes.”
  • On the Command Prompt window, type the following command, replacing “DEVICE_ID” with the value you copied. Enclose the pasted value in double quotes.
  • Then, press Enter.

Command Prompt will remove the specified Bluetooth device and display a message. If your device isn’t removed, ensure the entered device instance path is correct. With multiple methods at your disposal, removing paired Bluetooth devices, even the stubborn ones, is easy on your Windows PC. You can utilize the method you find convenient to use.
