    The Wi-Fi chip on my phone is fried, and only bluetooth is working.

    Right now, I'm using an old phone to share my home internet connection via bluetooth to my main device.

    I'd like to do this on my PC instead, since I leave it on 24/7 but there is virtually no information on how to do this no matter how much I search.

    Windows 10 has a built in hotspot feature for Wi-Fi, but nothing for bluetooth.

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    First you'll have to pair the devices. Then on Windows 10, you'll have to use the Bluetooth settings in the desktop Control Panel to connect.
    Look for a Bluetooth icon in the system task tray. Right click on it, then choose "Join a Personal Area Network". If your phone is nearby and enabled, it should come up in a Control Panel window to allow you to connect to it, assuming your phone supports the PAN device profile.

    It should work out for almost every PC
