Installing Dell 365 Bluetooth Module on Windows 10

Windows 10  do not have Generic Driver for Dell Bluetooth I read about some problem on Insider.
But  I found out  that Dell has removed Windows 8 and Windows 10 support in some old Windows 7 laptops like N5030  that is my Laptop model.

Dell wireless 365,370,380 Bluetooth module is the most common Bluetooth device that Dell uses. Its normally supports Widdcom Bluetooth driver  which is manufactured by Broadcom and Modified by Dell .

But fortunately the Windows 7 drivers are working fine on Windows 8 and Windows 10, and most of them are installed during the windows installation.

But the main problem is the Bluetooth driver (Dell Wireless 3XX module).
Because of that Dell 365 Bluetooth Module  Windows 7 are not compatible on Windows 8... so it mean  you can not install it too on Windows 10.

Broadcom has released their Bluetooth driver for Windows 8 PRO the  "Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0" driver has  support for a lot of Bluetooth devices and Dell Wireless  3XX Bluetooth module is in the support list.....But as Broadcom don't provide drivers directly to customers.... they give it to the system manufacturers like Dell, Lenovo, HP, etc. and the modify it for ease of their customers.

And  Sadly  Dell has removed Windows 8  to Windows 10 support for old model.

So here is the Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 driver from Lenovo site which is running fine on Dell 365 Bluetooth  device without any compatibility issue.

And also you can use Bluetooth Control Panel as you do in Windows 7.
