As far as I know their is no bluetooth settings.
It's either working or it is not working.
You can go into the hardware that uses that bluetooth and change settings for that hardware.

I use a mouse and keyboard bluetooth and I can go into the programs to set the mouse and keyboard but nothing with the bluetooth.

What are trying to or want to set in bluetooth.
