Removing the Pairing Between Your Mobile Phone and Your Computer

If you have changed your phone, it is broken, or you simply you don’t need to use it anymore to transfer files via Bluetooth with your computer, you can remove the pairing you’ve created so that it no longer appears in the Devices and Printers panel.

In this exercise, you will learn how to remove the pairing between your computer and your mobile phone from your Windows 7 computer.

  1. Right-click the phone that you want to remove.

    The contextual menu opens, which contains options for the selected phone.
