Bluetooth pan not connected
I have tried to connect a Bluetooth Keyboard.There is no icon in the system Preferences for it, how can i get one on there?
I have seen a articles on here where it tells you to press two keys on the keyboard and a click on the mouse, it is supposed to come up *Debug* .it only says about files Bluetooth on and off in the menu at the top.
I have had my 2012 Mac Mini for 1 year now.Could it be that the person who was the owner before never had any Bluetooth hardware on there, and that is why there is know Bluetooth icon in the system Preferences?
I hope some one can help me, have not had much luck on here before.
