Just installed elementary OS for the first time and I do not see any option for Bluetooth.

Tried some commands but no success:

# rfkill list
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
   Soft blocked: no
   Hard blocked: no

I can not even see Bluetooth under rfkill and no Bluetooth icon.

I'm a beginner with Linux. Any help will be appreciated.

What Wi-Fi/Bluetooth chipset do you have? From there you can check if the right drivers are installed and loaded using lsmod. Also can you open an application called Bluetooth - it comes with the default installation.
