As long as it has a wireless interface - yes. 

If not, you'll need to add one - USB is the easiest, although some maintain it's not the best performing or most reliable.

 

Personally, I always prefer to use a wired ethernet connection for stationary desktops, and only choose wireless for mobile devices (laptops etc) which mostly have onboard wireless these days.

Most laptops will have wireless built-in. Desktop machines rarely will.

 

I spent over an hour a few years back trying to get a laptop to connect until I found that my model had a wireless on/off switch - so watch out for that!

Don't bother with any of the BT software to make the connection. Windows has everything it needs built in.
