If you find any trouble while connecting the Cricut machine via Bluetooth, it's better to contact Cricut support or the member care team.



If your system or the Cricut model doesn't have Bluetooth, you can connect your Cricut machine to a computer via USB. To connect it, plug one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the side of the Cricut machine and another end of the cable into the USB port on the computer. This is to note that the Cricut Joy doesn't come with a USB cable.
