Hi there and welcome
I have checked and currently it is not listed as compatible with windows 10, as some hardware is not.
But there are some tricks that can get it to work.
First, are you getting an error when trying to use it? And if so, what error is this?

hi , its saying this file is older and windows cannot install
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, it should use the inbuilt files, so just insert the adapter and try to use it, do not try to install the driver from the site as this is too old (for previous versions).
What then happens?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
ok so i inserted the adapter...nothing happening
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, but your likely not going to see anything.
Try to actually use the adapter, pair to a bluetooth device.
What then happens?

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
What is the error you get when trying to connect and what exact steps are you taking?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
ok so turned on my iphones bluetooth and it searched but did not find my computer
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
You need to make the computer discoverable first.
So first go to search, type in Bluetooth and press enter
There turn on Bluetooth and set it to be discoverable then have the iPhone connect to the computer.
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
Let me know the results please
