    How do you turn off Bluetooth but leave wifi on in Windows 8.1?

    I've been trying a few things but every network setting I can find turns off everything, I'm using a fujitsu laptop and when I searched I found the Acer video, however a lot of the settings they have I don't. May be that's windows 8 and not 8.1.

    Windows 8 - How to Enable Bluetooth



    The reason I want to turn off bluetooth is I thought it may save battery life a bit and be helpful that way.

    Think I've found it.

    Go to:
    Control Panel:
    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System

    Start Device Manager

    Find Bluetooth and click out the tree, right click it and press disable.

    That should do it without affecting wifi.
