    I've installed Windows 7 and have paired my Bluetooth phone (Nokia 6275i). It appears in Devices and Printers and I have "Send a File" and "Receive a File" in the Bluetooth tray icon.

    In OS X, I have "Browse Device" in the Bluetooth menu, and it shows the folder structure on my phone. I can navigate through to, say, the Images folder and copy my photos across to my computer. How can I do this in 7? "Receive a File" just sits there waiting for someone to manually initiate a send, so how do I actually browse?

    If you couldn't tell, this is my first foray into Bluetooth in Windows :p

    Any tips?
    Thanks :)

    Update: I contacted Microsoft about this. This functionality (which I use regularly in OS X) is not available in Windows 7.
