Windows – Bluetooth file transfer disabled by policy on Windows 10

bluetoothwindows 10

I am trying to send file from my phone Android to a PC running Windows 10 but it fails. The PC and mobile phone are already paired.

I tried to go in "Send or receive files via Bluetooth" menu, selected "Receive Files" but the system return the message "File transfer is disabled by policy. Please check with your system administrator".

Where can I disable this policy? I am logged with an administrator account.

Thank you in advance

Here is how I fixed the Bluetooth file transfer error message:

  1. Open Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Advanced Sharing Settings
  2. Scroll down and click the down arrow to open All Networks
  3. Click Enable file sharing for devices that use 40 or 56 bit encryption
  4. Restart your computer

Now you should be able to send files from your PC via Bluetooth to your android phoneImage.
