    How do I get Bluetooth back after anniversary update?


    I have a Dell Inspiron 3000 series laptop, about three months old, that just did the Windows 10 Anniversary update, and now it 'lost' the Bluetooth ability that it had from the factory. I went to Device Manager, and saw an unknown device. I right clicked on it, and it came up as Bluetooth, so I clicked on Update Driver. It searched the internet and found the driver, but when it tried to download it, I got an error message that said it was not compatible with my platform. What next? TIA

    Thanks, Adalwar. I did what you suggested, and my computer now has Bluetooth again.
