I was using bluetooth speakers with my windows 10 desktop. The problem was a common one; the computer would pair with the speakers and say it was connected, but the sound icon was still red X'ed out. Now there are some work-arounds, such as rebooting the computer with the BT device turned on or delete and re-install the BT device also worked. I realize if I just leave the BT speaker on it wouldn't be an issue, but I use it so seldom, I prefer to leave it off until I need it, and having to delete and reinstall the device is not acceptable to my wife, who expects the speaker to work when she turns it on (imagine such audacity). Fortunately the solution is very simple. The speaker has a aux plug so I can attach the speaker to the speaker jack, and viola, the speaker drivers are always loaded and waiting for the speakers to be turned on.
