I have a new Mac computer. When buying it, I was told it has a wireless input device that uses a similar technology to that of Bluetooth. Of late, I have been trying to use Bluetooth on it, but I have not been able to. How do I find out whether my computer has Bluetooth? How do I activate Bluetooth on a Mac Computer? All help is appreciated.

1. Find the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar in the upper-right of your display.
2. Choose ‘Set up Bluetooth Device’ from the Bluetooth status menu.
If the Bluetooth status menu isn’t visible in your menu bar, use these steps to open the Bluetooth Setup Assistant:
1. Choose ‘System Preferences’ from the Apple menu, then choose ‘Bluetooth’ from the ‘View’ menu.
2. Enable the "Show Bluetooth status in the menu bar" option. After you pair a device with your computer, you should see the device listed in Bluetooth preferences.
