If you don't see the Bluetooth icon, but Bluetooth does appear in Device Manager, try uninstalling the Bluetooth adapter, shutting down your PC, and triggering an automatic driver reinstall:
1] Run Hardware and Device Troubleshooter
The built-in Hardware Troubleshooter scans for issues and makes sure that any new device or hardware attached to your computer is installed correctly or not. To run the troubleshooter, do the following:
2] Restart Bluetooth Support Service
You may want to check if the related Services are started and running smoothly. To do this, press Windows key + R, type services.msc. Next, right click on Bluetooth Support service and select Restart.
Right click on Bluetooth support service and select Properties and ensure that the startup type is Automatic.
The Bluetooth service supports discovery and association of remote Bluetooth devices. Stopping or disabling this service may cause already installed Bluetooth devices to fail to operate properly and prevent new devices from being discovered or associated.
3] Enable the Bluetooth Audio Service
Verify whether the settings for the Bluetooth speaker given below is enabled by default or not. If not, enable it and check if it solves the issue. Follow the steps to enable the Bluetooth Audio Service.
Press Win+X key together and select Control Panel from the list. Select Devices and Printers.
In Devices and Printers, locate the Bluetooth speaker device and right click on the device. Click on Properties and navigate to Services tab.
Select Audio Sink, Hands-free Telephony, and Remote Control and click on Apply.
4] Update Bluetooth Device Driver
To do this, you can use the Device Manager.
Press Win+R, type devmgmt.msc to open the Device Manager. Expand Bluetooth.
Click on Properties, click on Driver tab.
Click Update Drivers button.
Click on OK button.
I dont know what bluethoot speaker I need to select, since I dont have anythin to show up.
The first important step is to make the device you want to connect to your laptop or desktop discoverable. You do this by initiating pairing mode. The way to do this varies, depending on the device you want to use (headphones, speakers, smartphone, etc.). Check the manual of your product for more information on pairing mode.
At this point, your computer might automatically install the required drivers, and this will prompt a notification near the taskbar area. Depending on your headphone or speaker model, you might have to enter the pairing code. The default code is 0000.
Once the device is added you will see the following screen:
When you click on the [Devices and Printers] button, it will take you to an overview of the devices connected to your laptop/desktop.
If your headphones are equipped with a microphone, you will have the option to choose the operations you want to use your headphones for:
Listen to music
Forward VoIP Calls to HandsfreeNote that the second option will reduce your sound quality compared to the first option because it takes preference on signal strength over sound quality.
Finally, right-click on the sound icon in the taskbar to select [Playback devices] and make sure your headphones are selected as the Default Playback Device
Try switching Bluetooth OFF and ON again if you are certain your device is in pairing mode but is not showing in your device list on your computer.
