As far as bugs are concerned, Windows 10 2004 isn’t out of the woods yet. That’s because its users are still reporting different types of issues that affect the functionality of their hardware and software.

Moreover, one of the most recent Windows 10 2004issues to come to the fore has something to do with functionality of Bluetooth devices.

Windows 10 2004 Bluetooth trouble

A distraught user of Windows 10 2004 recently reported on Reddit how upgrading to the OS caused Bluetooth problems.

In particular, the OS indicates the user’s Bluetooth hardware as disconnected, which is likely if the hardware is broken. However, the user doesn’t seem to think that their device is faulty.

They even plugged in a Bluetooth dongle, which didn’t work either. The hardware just couldn’t connect to any Bluetooth hardware, including earphones.

Bluetooth stopped working. According to the internet, it is an undesired side effect of the 2004 Windows iteration. The OS claims that the very BT hardware is disconnected. While there is a chance that the hardware really broke while I was using it, I even tried a BT dongle. It appears as a new device, but it won’t let me connect to, say, my Bluetooth earphones.

To add insult to injury, the user is unable to disconnect their Bluetooth earphones.

Bluetooth issues are some of the earliest to appear on the Windows 10 2004 support page immediately after the OS went live. Notably, Microsoft is still investigating the incompatibility of Realtek Bluetooth radios and the new OS to date.

But today, July 14, 2020, is Patch Tuesday, the day Microsoft releases multiple security and non-security fixes for the Windows 10 operating system.

Maybe today’s updates will include solutions for the persistent Bluetooth complications and a host of other hot-button bugs.
