Fix connections to Bluetooth audio devices and wireless displays

Bluetooth audio

If pressing the Connect button in Action Centre doesn’t find your device, here are some things to try:
– Make sure that your Windows device supports Bluetooth and that it’s turned on. You’ll see a Bluetooth button in Action Centre.
– If you don’t see the Bluetooth button, try updating your device’s driver. Here’s how: go to Start, enter Device Manager, select it from the list of results, and then, in Device Manager, locate your device, right-click (or press and hold) it, select Update Driver Software, select Search automatically for updated driver software, and then follow the rest of the steps.


– If Bluetooth is turned on, and the driver is up to date, but your device still doesn’t work, try removing the device and re-pairing it. Here’s how: go to Start, enter Devices, select Bluetooth, select the device, select Remove device, and then try pairing again.
– Make sure that the Bluetooth-enabled audio device is on and discoverable. How you do this varies with devices, so check the info that came with your device or go to the manufacturer’s website.

Miracast devices

If pressing the Connect button in Action Centre doesn’t find your device, try the following:
Make sure that your Windows device supports Miracast by checking the information that came with it or by going to the manufacturer’s website.
Make sure that WiFi is turned on.
Make sure that the display you want to project to supports Miracast and that it’s turned on. If it doesn’t, you’ll need a Miracast adapter (sometimes called a “dongle”) that plugs into an HDMI port.
Make sure that your device drivers are up to date and the latest firmware is installed for your wireless display or adapter (see the Support info on the manufacturer’s website for instructions, or search the Windows Store for a manufacturer’s app to help you).
Restart your PC and the wireless display or adapter.
Remove the device by going to Start > Settings > Devices > Connected devices, then, under Projectors, select the wireless display or adapter and tap or click Remove device. Try reconnecting.

WiGig devices

If pressing the Connect button in Action Centre doesn’t find your device, try the following:
Make sure that your Windows device supports WiGig and is turned on. If your PC supports WiGig, you’ll see a WiGig button in Settings > Flight mode.
Make sure that the display supports WiGig. If it doesn’t, you’ll need a WiGig dock.
