Remove list Bluetooth devices

Is there a way to delete the old list of Bluetooth devices? When I click on the x next to it, he tries to associate rather than delete them. I opened the plist for Bluetooth with Xcode, but I don't see old appliances under recent devices, and the Favorites are the devices that I use.


Resolved on mine. Hold down the option key when you select the Bluetooth menu in the Finder. It will give you the opportunity to remove the device.

  • 'Delete Failed' Bluetooth device

    I had problems to make my audio adapter Logitech Bluetooth S-00113 to work with my Acer S7 - 391 running Windows 8. Acer has been pushing WiFi and Bluetooth driver updated since last year. After the driver was updated, the Logitech audio adapter still does not work - it remains in "offline" mode In the past, I was able to remove the device and re-pair. It would sometimes work after doing this. After this last driver update, can I remove is no longer the device - I get a message "Cannot delete"

    How can I remove the Bluetooth audio adapter?

    p.s. the Logitech audio adapter works great with my iPod, it is not a hardware problem.

    I had the same problem as you. I've solved this by removing several registry keys using PSTools (psexec-i s regedit) while in a command prompt run as administrator. Then, I removed all Bluetooth devices by using Device Manager. I've downloaded windows 8.1 support and then reinstalled the Windows only system (not user files or programs).

    I came to this solution after two below-related forums.

    1. a good explanation of the problem:

    2. the registry entries that should be deleted:

    I downloaded the Microsoft installation media of:

    I downloaded PSTools from:

    Overall, the process took 30 minutes to solve after I had spent 9 hours of troubleshooting. The problem seems to lie in the fact that enumerator Microsoft's Bluetooth not publish the device in the list. The list is stored in the registry, so even that if you remove the enumerator in the list of devices, it regenerates itself.

  • Check out Get the address of the Bluetooth device list

    I have two series Bluetooth devices both send numbers to pc.what I want to know is how to get the address of the list of devices Bluetooth discover bluetooth device then use to connect to the first device read data log and connect a second device.

    Hello Aymanch,

    The Bluetooth Discover VI will be released a cluster with devices within the range of your network, where a feature will be the address and the second part will be the name of the device. You can then use the address as an input for the VI of open connection and then pass this reference reading VI and close connection VI.

    If you want to see an example of how to get the address of the cluster and how to use these screws, please open the example Finder and search for Simple Bluetooth project. The shows how to unbundle the cluster and the shows something similar to what you want to accomplish. Because you are going to use two devices, you can even use a loop to repeat the operation on the two addresses.

  • How to remove Bluetooth devices in double

    Hardware: Acer Aspire 1410 Netbook under Windows 7 Home Premium, Iogear mini USB Bluetooth adapter (device working properly in Device Manager).

    I am trying to pair a Bluetooth headset stereo Motorola Motorokr S9 - HD with the Acer's Netbook.

    When I try to pair the headset, I see 2 of them in the Bluetooth Setup Wizard, select a device dialog box.  The helmet is never paired with the Netbook.  I guess it is because there are 2 of them.  How can I remove the two devices so that I can start fresh?

    I spent several weeks trying to get this headset work with my Netbook.  The needs of S9 A2DP and AVRCP, which claims to support the Iogear BT adapter.  However, encouraging them to play well together seems almost impossible.  I am very frustrated.

  • HP Pavillion G6-1a21ca - device Bluetooth adapter is no longer listed in Device Manager... How to get my bluetooth?


    Today I went to connect a bluetooth device and noticed that I no longer had my bluetooth adapter listed in my HP wireless assistant. I went and checked the Device Manager to see if maybe that the issue had been disabled by mistake and noticed that he was is no longer enrolled here either. I literally spent the day combing internet and google to try to find a way to solve this problem and have developed empty.

    I have installed current drivers and don't have to update the Ralink drivers recently which caused the corruption. If I open "My Bluetooth" it simply asserts that the Bluetooth radio is currently unavailable. I found a number of people with similar problems, but they had different operating systems or other reasons that their solutions have not helped. I can't understand how to install this unit or know where he was going. It is not listed as an unknown device in my device manager either.

    I can post/send screenshots and will provide as much info as I can.

  • Remove no paired Bluetooth devices

    My DROID is recovering laptop of my neighbor and the BlackBerry as devices.  I've never associated with them, I've never will pair with them, but I can't have them out of the list of devices.


    The next time you are away from your home of neighbours (at work) then go into settings and pair bluetooth devices.  Since they are not in the range, and he finds them they will disappear off list.  Tell your neighbor to turn off discoverable mode on its devices.

  • Remove printers from the list of devices

    I'm working on a Mac with Office 2011. I have three printers on the list of devices, but I only use one (only have one!). The others were probably added when I work somewhere else and if necessary to print something. I can't get rid of the other printers in the list if, and if I do not watch I send something to print and he's going to the wrong printer and I have to return the order. I would like to delete the printers I do not use or at least be able to choose my printer by default, but could not find a way to do it. Clues?

    Thank you!

    Go to System Preferences > print & fax.  Select the printer that you don't want and click on the '-' sign at the bottom of the list.  Do the same for the other printers, you do not want.

  • Bluetooth device not no projection in sound-> output

    My bluetooth (speaker) device indicates 'Connected' in the list of bluetooth devices (in preferences-> Bluetooth system).

    However, I don't see it as an option when I go to Preferences-> sound-> release system.

    Any thoughts why? This has worked in the past, but not at the moment. I have not tried to restart my machine.

    Hi JVogue,

    Looks like you are unable to select your bluetooth device paired as a source of audio output to system preferences. I would start by pairing not your device:

    Remove a device from your Mac

    If you want to remove (désapparier) a device from the list of devices on your Mac, follow these steps:

    1. Choose the Apple menu > System Preferences, and then click Bluetooth.
    2. Place the pointer on the device you want to remove, and then click the button which appears next to the device name.

    Note: After you delete a Bluetooth device, you need to repeat the pairing process, if you want to use again.

    From: using a Bluetooth mouse, keyboard or trackpad with your Mac

    When that is done, start in safe mode. This will clear some system-level caches and perform a disk check and repair if necessary:

    Follow these steps to start in safe mode.

    1. Start or restart your Mac.
    2. As soon as you hear the startup tone, hold down the SHIFT key.
    3. Release the SHIFT key when you see the logo Apple appears on the screen.

    After the Apple logo appears, this may take longer than usual to reach the login screen or your office. This is because your Mac performs a check of directory of your drive to boot in safe mode.

    To leave safe mode, restart your computer without pressing any keys during startup.

    From: try safe mode if your Mac does not start-up

    Once you log in safe mode, that's all you need to do there, then restart your computer as usual using Apple > restart. Pair the device again, and then check that you can select as output. Thank you for using communities of Apple Support, all the best!
