If pressing the Connect button in action center doesn't find your device, here are some things to try:

  • Check action center to see if your Windows device supports Bluetooth. If it does, there'll be a Bluetooth  button in action center. Make sure it's turned on.

  • If you don't see the Bluetooth  button in action center, try updating your device's driver. Here's how:

    1. Go to Start , enter Device Manager, and select it from the list of results.

    2. In Device Manager, locate your device, press and hold (or right-click) it, select Update driver, select Search automatically for updated driver software, and then follow the rest of the steps.

  • If Bluetooth is turned on and the driver is up to date but your device still doesn't work, try removing the device and re-pairing it. Here's how:

    1. Go to Start , enter Devices, select Bluetooth and other devices settings >select the device > Remove device > Yes.

    2. Try pairing again.

  • Make sure that the Bluetooth-enabled audio device is on and discoverable. How you do this varies with devices, so check the info that came with your device or go to the manufacturers website.
