How do I fix my Bluetooth on my Mac?
The first thing you’ll want to do is head over to your Mac’s Bluetooth icon in the menu bar. It will likely be at the upper-right corner of your screen.
Next, click on the Bluetooth icon and select “Disconnect Device.”
This will prompt a pop-up asking if you are sure you want to disconnect your device. Click “Yes” to continue.
Next, go back to the Bluetooth menu and select “Add Device.”
You should see a list of devices that are currently connected to your computer. If not, disconnect any old devices and reconnect them. This should give you all of your available Bluetooth devices listed on your screen.
Now, click on the name of the device you want to reset and then click “Reset Pairing” from the menu bar above it.
Your device will then be paired with whatever Bluetooth device it was previously paired with before this resetting process took place!
How do I reset Bluetooth on my Mac?
You can reset your Bluetooth on your Mac by going to “System Preferences.” This will open up a window with all of the different settings that you can change for your Mac. The top option is called “Bluetooth.” Click on this, and then click on “Reset Bluetooth device.” Then when you click on the right-hand circle, it will say “Bluetooth Devices.” Then you should see your devices listed here. If you don’t see any devices listed here, then it means that they have been deleted from your Mac or they are not paired with it anymore.
If you have a device that is not being paired with your Mac and you want to pair it again, just select the device from this list and click on “Pair New Device” at the bottom. This will make it so that this device is now paired with your Mac again and all of its settings will be loaded onto it as well.
If you want to clear out all of the old devices that are currently paired with your Mac, just go ahead and select “Clear All Paired Devices” at the bottom of this screen. This will automatically remove every single one of these devices from pairing with your Mac and no longer be able to use them until they are re-paired again in the future (you just need to do this once).
Why did my Bluetooth stop working on my Mac?

Most computers and laptops come with Bluetooth built in. This is a wireless connection you can use to connect your keyboard, mouse, or other Bluetooth-enabled device with your computer. Although Bluetooth is used primarily for sending and receiving data, it can also be used to share your Mac’s Internet connection with other devices.
