Update/reinstall Bluetooth Driver Software 

After connecting to your Pc or laptop if the Bluetooth devices are not working or are incompatible with your system, then update/reinstall the Bluetooth device driver is the most working solution I have personally found.

To update Bluetooth driver Press Windows Key + R then type devmgmt.msc and hit Enter. Expand Bluetooth then right-click on your device and select Update Driver.

Select “Search automatically for updated driver software” and follow on-screen instructions to let windows check for the latest available driver If found any windows automatically download and install them for you. After that restart windows and check Bluetooth device started working.
If updating the device driver didn’t help then try Rollback and Reinstall option or visit device manufacturer website, download the latest available driver and install this on your system check Bluetooth devices started working as before.

If Bluetooth stopped working suddenly after recent windows 10 upgrade and applying all above solutions didn’t fix the problem then the last option you may apply uninstall the windows 10 latest build and wait for Microsoft to fix the bug.
