    Connecting to an already bluetooth device that is NOT audio or wireless display


    Dear Microsoft Community,


    I really love Windows 10, but for a few years now I am struggling with sharing certain bluetooth devices, such as wireless bluetooth gamepads, between different computers.

    The issue I am running into is reconnecting to an already paired bluetooth device that is NOT an audio device, like a bluetooth speaker or headset, or a wireless display.

    For some reason, the connect menu (Win + K), only searches for Audio devices and wireless displays. At the same time, when choosing the "Find other devices" option in that menu, the new window with all the paired bluetooth devices that pops up only has the connect button available for Audio devices and Wireless displays, but not for anything else, like my wireless gamepads or keyboards.


    Is there any way to reconnect to an already paired wireless device that is not an audio device or wireless display without having to remove the device before, enter it into pairing mode, and repairing it with my windows machine every time I use the device on a different computer?

    • Select Device Manager.
    • Expand Display Adapter.

      Uninstall.
    • Restart the computer.

    Step 2: Update
    Wireless Display Driver.

    • Press Windows key + X key when you are at desktop.

    windows 10 Bluetooth audio problems

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    • What is the make and model of your computer?
    • Do you get any error message?

    I suggest to use a different Bluetooth speaker and check if the same issue persists. Also try using the current speaker with different computer running Windows 10 and check. As you are getting Crackles or warning sound it might be an issue with hardware.

    Refer the link below and perform the troubleshooting steps suggested and check if that helps.
