    Does anyone know where Windows keeps the bluetooth icon?

    I freely admit that, in the greater scheme of crashes, re-installs and general weirdness that has been my Win10 experience to date, this is a very tiny thing. But it's annoying me. I'm using CSR bluetooth stack 2.1.63. First time I installed it, it worked perfectly. Now I'm on a more successful rebuild, I cannot get the correct Bluetooth icon in the task bubble! It's always grayed out (and even this was a challenge; I had no icon until I re-did the driver installation twice.)

    It struck me that it might not be too hard to either change Windows' path to the icon or replace the grey one with blue. If only I knew where to look. What do you think?

    Thank you very much, Soxmis, but what I was wondering was how to tell Windows to use the blue icon.

    Oh right, I thought you'd already figured that out lol.

    Look for references to it in the registry?

    You're right. Actually it came back after an update - though my Mail app & Edge have stopped working but at least I know where to look next time it goes wrong!
