    Bluetooth headset doesn't get detected as audio device automatically


    Win10 Pro x64 1809
    Headset: August EP650 (Bluetooth v 4.2)
    Portable TV, Portable Freeview Digital TV, Handheld TV, Bluetooth Speakers, Bluetooth Headphones, Bluetooth Receiver, Bluetooth DAB Radio, Clock Radio, TV Aerial

    Bluetooth dongle: MPOW MPBH079AB (Bluetooth v 4.0)

    I've got the headphones paired via Bluetooth but when clicking on the sound icon in systray there's no option to quick switch.

    To get audio through the headset I have to go to Devices and Printers, right-click the headset icon, select Control, then I get the following window:

    I then have to choose Connect.

    Only then does the option to switch audio appear in the sound pop-up

    I'm not sure what is required to get the headphones detected automatically - is it a limitation of the headset or my Bluetooth dongle?

    OK, so I just removed the device then re-paired it. The very first time I connected it the auto-switch option appears in the volume pop-up. I thought that was it fixed!

    But, no. After turning off the headset and turning it back on it doesn't appear in the volume pop-up anymore
