Open the Settings app in Windows 10. You can find it by typing Settings in the Windows 10 search bar and selecting the app once it appears. Its icon looks like a cog. Alternatively, you can press the Windows key + I at the same time.
In the Settings menu, choose Devices.
The Bluetooth & other devices page will pop up. First, make sure that Bluetooth is turned on by checking the toggle near the top of the page. If it isn’t, flip it on.
Select Add Bluetooth or other device.
The Add a device menu will pop up, asking you which kind of device you’d like to pair with. Select Bluetooth.
Grab your AirPods or AirPods Pro and open the lid.
Hold down the circular button on the back of your AirPods for around three to eight seconds. The charging light on your AirPods will eventually start pulsing white. When this happens, lift your finger and look back up at the Add a device menu.
Be patient. It might take a couple of seconds for the AirPods to appear. When they do, they’ll likely appear as “Headphones” at first and then Windows 10 will load them as “AirPods Pro” (or whatever name you gave them on iOS, if you have an iPhone or iPad you previously used them with). Select them.
You’ll get a notification saying, “Your device is ready to go!”
