[SOLVED] MSI Z690 Tomahawk DDR4

nope, wifi can be disabled in bios, but bluetooth is just ordinary USB device
you can disable them separately in operating system, either through device manager or through notification center (windows10)/win 11 has it on taskbar when you click speaker icon

Thanks. You mean that with the board comes a seperate Bluetooth USB stick that has to be inserted in front or back of the PC case?
 
nope, that bluetooth usb stick is integrated with that wifi module, both wifi and bluetooth modules are one same chip, but wifi is connected through pci-e while bluetooth is connected through USB
if your bios allows you to disable USB from CPU (not from chipset), then you could disable bluetooth this way

Thanks. So, I can definitely deactivate WIFI via Bios if not needed. Bluetooth can only be connected if Bios allows to disable USB via Bios - but then maybe all USB devices are disconnected?
