There isn`t one for desktop PCs, you will have to log in using a web browser.

Hi Keith

 

Where did it go?  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/bt-wi-fi/9wzdncrdnfsf

 

https://www.btplc.com/BTToday/NewsList/BTWi-filaunchesWindows81devicesapp/index.htm

 

 

 


It may have been withdrawn, as the page no longer has a download link.

 

It does say

 

Installation
Get this app while signed in to your Microsoft account and install on up to ten Windows 10 devices.

 

I will ask for clarification.

Thanks Kieth

 

I think its more likely Microsoft have removed it from their App Store for whatever reason - maybe unintentionally.

 

Surely it is available somewhere else?

 

BT must have it somewhere??

 

I was logged in when I followed the MS "get app" link above.

@AF1 Yes unfortunately it is no longer available. The app development team responded to another forum user last year explaining that support had been withdrawn as there were very few users left on that mobile operating system.  You can see the response on this thread.

Hi NielO

 

I don't mind if its supported or not - I just want to get my hands on it.

 

It must have been available when Win 10 arrived because the other responder quoted that.  That's not long ago is it?

 

I need it when travelling with my laptop.

 

Has anyone got a copy please?

I see from the other thread that it was still available for PCs in December 2016: 

 

Just to let you know the BT Wi-fi App for Windows Phones has already been withdrawn from the Windows Store. Still available for PCs!

@AF1 you don't need an app to connect to a BT Wifi connection as you can connect via your network settings.  The instructions are here

When I'm travelling I need the ease and usability of the app to map and locate private shared hotspots - like I have on my phone but on my laptop!

 

Surely someone has a copy - please!!!!
