Find Bluetooth Devices

To start a search for devices, in the Folders pane of My Bluetooth Places, select Entire
Bluetooth Neighborhood, and then, from the Bluetooth menu, select Search for Devices.
NOTE: The Bluetooth menu is only visible when My Bluetooth Places is active.

displayed list of devices in the neighborhood is current, or if automatic periodic inquiry is
not enabled, force an update of the device list using the technique described in Search for
