It does not appear to be possible to disable "Allow Bluetooth devices to find this PC" via group policy. This setting can be found in Settings > Bluetooth and other devices > More Bluetooth options

 

Can someone point me to the GPO to disable this, or can this be added as a future feature request?

Hi @colinford25

There's no GPO to disable such setting.
You could hide Bluetooth page from Settings altogether, but I don't think this is what you want:

Thanks for your response Spigolo. Correct, I am after a group policy so that it is fully blocked. Is this the correct forum for Windows 10 feature requests since UserVoice is no more?

You're welcome @colinford25
