Bluetooth devices not working with Windows 10

The Windows 10 May 2019 Update launched on May 22, and while Microsoft has gone to great lengths to try to make sure that this latest major update to Windows 10 is not plagued by the same level of problems that the October 2018 Update suffered, there have been some Windows 10 May 2019 Update problems spotted already.

Bluetooth devices not working:

If you've found that your Bluetooth device no longer correctly works with your Windows 10 May 2019 Update, then a recent security update for the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (and other versions of Windows) is likely to be the cause of the problem.
The patch is aimed at older Bluetooth devices that pose security risks. According to Microsoft: " You may experience issues pairing, connecting or using certain Bluetooth devices after installing security updates released June 11, 2019. These security updates address a security vulnerability by intentionally preventing connections from Windows to unsecure Bluetooth devices." 

So it's actually designed to stop certain Bluetooth devices connecting to your PC. To fix this, you should either consider changing to a more recent – and more secure – Bluetooth device, or contact the manufacturer of your Bluetooth device to see if there is an update for the device.

If not, and you want to continue using the device, then you'll need to roll back your Windows 10 May 2019 Update PC to before the security update was installed. However, we don't recommend this.
