    The quickest way to do this is to find our Quick Menu and that is in our notification panel.

    Right now it's white and this means it's turned off.
    It's the default setting for the Bluetooth to be turned off, because it does take up a lot of battery power. It's good to turn it on when we need it. If we don't need it, turn it off again. If we want to transfer something via Bluetooth, it's very useful, and then we can turn it off if we don't need it anymore.

    The other way we can access the Bluetooth is to go the Setting menu.
    If we're not in this area for whatever reason, and we find that were in the settings menu already, then we can access this option as well.
