Disable Bluetooth File transfer(Fsquirt.exe) RRS feed

  • Question

  • We only want to block the Bluetooth file transfer (Fsquirt.exe) on our windows 10 devices so that users can not transfer files to other private devices.
    Do not want Bluetooth device to be disabled completely, user should be able to access Headhones or other devices.

    Tried below option 

    1) Modify the registry item

    HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\BTHPORT\Parameters
    Value name DisableFsquirt
    Value type REG_DWORD
    Value data 0x1 (1)

    2) Executed command: Fsquirt.exe -UnRegister

    3) Restarted device

    I can see the option for Bluetooth is disappear for files.
    Right Click file --> Send to --> No Option for Bluetooth

    However, I can see the option "Send or receive files via Bluetooth" under 'Bluetooth and other devices' settings. Files can be transferred by using this.

    Is there any way to disable this option ?
