    Bluetooth no longer working after 21H1 quality update


    After I updated my PC, my bluetooth icon disappeared from my taskbar. I checked the bluetooth settings, and the on/off button has disappeared as well. I tried updating the drivers and restarting, but it didn't fix anything. Then, I removed the driver in hopes of reinstalling it after, but now it doesn't show up in my device manager anymore, even when clicking the "Show hidden devices" option. I also went onto Intel's website to download and install the latest driver manually, but it doesn't show up even after running the file.

    :)
