I have a new Dell xps 8900 desktop. When I get on the Bluetooth it just circles and can never find any devices even though they are close by. Nothing in device manager seems out of place. Bought new with windows 10, hasn't worked yet. Something I'm not doing that should be obvious? Should I search the Bluetooth adapter and look for a driver update?

Sometimes you have to put the device into "discover" mode.

Believe it or not - I updated the driver in device manager and now it works fine!
