Why can’t my Bluetooth headset connect in Windows 10?

Keep in mind that the main reason for bluetooth headsets not being able to connect is driver errors. Since these are the ones that allow you to activate Bluetooth in Windows 10 and correctly pair the new devices.

Another reason for the inconvenience is due to the synchronization of your hearing aids. In these cases, the ideal is to review the instruction manual and follow the recommendations to the letter.

How to solve when a Bluetooth headset does not connect within Windows 10?

To solve this problem you must put into practice the advice that we will explain below. Follow these recommendations if you want to learn how to transfer files from your phone to your PC using Bluetooth .

Go back to the previous version of Windows

Windows 10 operating system is updating automatically . It is possible that one of those updates is the source of the connection error between the headphones and our PC. The best we can do is go back to a previous version of Windows 10, when everything was working fine.

However, it is important to mention that this procedure must be done within ten days of said update. Since we will not be able to return to the previous version without exceeding this period . For this we must do the following:

We go to start and select the ‘Settings’ option, a window will be displayed where we will click where it says ‘Update and security’. By doing this we will see a panel on the left, there we  click where it says ‘Recovery’ . Then we locate where it says ‘Go back to the previous version of Windows 10’ and press start.

Once this step is done, a window will appear with a series of options to choose from. In your case you will choose ‘My apps or devices don’t work on this build ‘, and click ‘Next’.

When performing this step, a window appears offering to update to correct these errors, in your case you will click on ‘No, thanks’. You just have to click on next in the windows and you just have to wait for the restoration process to complete .

Set Bluetooth to autostart

To carry out this procedure we will carry out the following steps. We must go to the Windows search engine and write ‘Services’,  we select this tool that will appear in the search box. Once this is done, a window will be displayed with many options to choose from, we are interested in the one that says ‘Bluetooth compatibility service’.

Having located this option, what we will do is right click on it and click on ‘Properties’. Doing so will open a window, we will go where it says ‘Startup type’, there we will select the option that says ‘Automatic’.

The next step is to click on ‘Apply’ and ‘OK’. Then we right click again on ‘Bluetooth Support Service’ and click where it says ‘Restart’. We confirm this action by clicking on ‘Yes’, and we wait for this process to end.

It is worth mentioning that the automatic start is also related to knowing how to  enable and configure Bluetooth on the PC from Windows 10.  As we master the subject, we will obtain better results from this tutorial.

With the troubleshooter

A very good alternative to resolve system errors in Windows 10 is by using the ‘Troubleshooter’ tool. To start using it we must go to the search bar and write ‘Solve configuration problems’ and then click on ‘Open’.

Once there, we locate the Bluetooth option and select where it says ‘run troubleshooter’ and follow its recommendations. Finally, you just have to wait for the tool to apply the necessary changes to solve the Bluetooth connection problems.

What to do to uninstall and reinstall Bluetooth drivers in Windows 10?

We are going to go to the Windows search engine and write the following ‘Device Manager’. By doing this we will locate ourselves in the name of the controller . Then, we right click on it and choose the ‘Uninstall’ option, when doing this, a window opens and click on ‘OK’.

To install, you just have to go to the search engine and write ‘Windows update’. Being there, we will click where it says ‘Check for updates’. This process is automatic, you just have to wait a few minutes. Once finished, it is important to restart the computer, so that the changes are carried out correctly.
