have you tried to send something to your computer yet?
if you click the hidden items arrow bottom right of the taskbar do you see the bluetooth icon in the window that opens.
right clicking on it doesnt give the options to open!
at least not on this laptop, it give the options to add a device send and receive files,open settings etc.
chances are you already have bluetooth turned on.
see if your phone can find it, if your phone has bluetooth
