  2. Bluetooth headset doesn't get detected as audio device automatically

    Win10 Pro x64 1809
    Headset: August EP650 (Bluetooth v 4.2)
    Portable TV, Portable Freeview Digital TV, Handheld TV, Bluetooth Speakers, Bluetooth Headphones, Bluetooth Receiver, Bluetooth DAB Radio, Clock Radio, TV Aerial

    Bluetooth dongle: MPOW MPBH079AB (Bluetooth v 4.0)
    Mpow ® | Match Your Smart Life

    I've got the headphones paired via Bluetooth but when clicking on the sound icon in systray there's no option to quick switch.

    To get audio through the headset I have to go to Devices and Printers, right-click the headset icon, select Control, then I get the following window:

    I then have to choose Connect.

    Only then does the option to switch audio appear in the sound pop-up

    I'm not sure what is required to get the headphones detected automatically - is it a limitation of the headset or my Bluetooth dongle?

    Bluetooth Headset Switching to Headphone mode during a call.

    I'm using some bluetooth headphones with my Windows 10 machine. They create two separate playback devices in the Sound list, Headphones and Headset. Headphones is Stereo audio and set to Default device. Headset includes microphone recording audio as well
    and is set to default communications device.

    The issue is when I'm in a call, non call audio (e.g. system notifications, program alerts, internet video) will play and switch my headphones from headset mode to headphone mode, and I lose my call audio. Obviously setting headset to default device and
    not just default communications device solves this issue, but I'm looking for a more automatic solution. I've tried setting Mute all other sounds in the Communications tab, but that hasn't helped.

    Anyone have a way to automatically either disable the default device or mute all non call sounds to all playback devices when in a call?

    Additional notes, that may or may not matter:

    Headphones are Jabra Elite Active 65t (optimized for phone usage, not laptop usage)

    Calling program is Skype for Business
