Hi. Yesterday I bought some bluetooth headphones but I can't connect to my desktop (dell optiplex 960-Wind 8). I also bought a cheap generic bluetooth dongle and I can see it in Device manager with 2 subdivisions (generic radio and microsoft bluetooth numerator). apparently I have to pair them but I don't know what is wrong. any help?Tanks

does it show a bluetooth icon in the system try?

click on the icon and see list of detected items ( headphones and posssibly your phone)

click on headphone an select connect, might need a passkey (will have come on paperwork with headphones)
