Disable Bluetooth in Windows 10


Enterprise administrators sometimes ask, how do I prevent Bluetooth file transfers or radio transmissions in Windows 10. If that’s your scenario, there is not (as time of writing) any GPO to manage this. So Microsoft Technical Solutions Professional Chris Jones to the rescue! PowerShell snippet fit for SCCM or MDT stunts below!

# Must be run under System
$namespaceName = “root\cimv2\mdm\dmmap”
$className = “MDM_Policy_Config01_Connectivity02”

# Add the setting to turn off the Bluetooth toggle in the settings menu
New-CimInstance -Namespace $namespaceName -ClassName $className -Property @{ParentID=”./Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config”;InstanceID=”Connectivity”;AllowBluetooth=0}

# Remove the setting to allow the User to control when the radio is turned on
$blueTooth = Get-CimInstance -Namespace $namespaceName -ClassName $className -Filter ‘ParentID=”./Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config” and InstanceID=”Connectivity”‘
Remove-CimInstance $blueTooth

Enjoy!
