    Is this forum for Bluetooth?


    If not, can someone please point me to some good Bluetooth forums.

    Sure. What issue are you having with your Bluetooth?

    I have a Windows 10 computer up-to-date, an Echo-Dot and a set of Bose Bluetooth headphones. I would like to play the computer (with Bluetooth capability) and the Echo-Dot through my Bose Bluetooth headphones - but, of course, not at the same time. I'd like to be able to watch a movie on the computer - then easily switch to the Echo-Dot and shut the movie audio off. Also, vice-versa. Thank you, Brink.........

    You can do it with the Bluetooth app shortcut to swap between BT devices.

    Bluetooth has me baffled. Would you please explain what app you are referring to and how to set it up for all three devices? I used to show the Echo-Dot as a device on my computer - but it's gone and I can't seem to get it back. Much appreciated!

    PS: I like your Ren/Stimpy dialogue..........

    Go into the Settings App and choose Apps to place a short cut if not already there when you open up Settings by the Clock. Bluetooth should be in the list there.

    Thank you for your help - but, unless I did something wrong from your directions, I can't drag the Bluetooth app to the Desktop. Also, I need a lot more detail to set this up - perhaps a forum dedicated to Bluetooth.

    Thank you - I understand that. My problem is in pairing all three devices. I can't seem to get it done although (by accident I guess), I did it once before.

    They should show up in Devices and Printers. You can only pair one at a time, not all at the same time.
