Hi nirajvictor_pandey,

 

Thank you for posting the question on Microsoft Community.

 

As per the description provided, it looks you are not able to recieve files on laptop using bluetooth.

I have a couple of steps that I believe should assist you with this issue.

 

Method 1:

 

Check whether the Bluetooth Support Service is started by following the below steps:

a. Press Windows symbol + R key on the leyboard simultaneously and type in Run, services.msc, hit Enter.

b. Right click on Bluetooth Support Service and click on Start or Restart.

 

Method 2:

 

Download and install the bluetooth driver for Windows 8 and check:
