Why is the latest Windows 10 Update Uninstalling Bluetooth Drivers?

Everytime I install the bluetooth drivers on my Asus laptop they work for while then go missing. Anyone else with such a problem? How do I solve that?

I wouldn’t say it’s a Windows 10 problem… Seeing that I haven’t seen anyone else with such an issue.

Not a Windows 10 problem. In fact my bluetooth was horrible before the update. It is stable now with the new update.

try uninstalling bluetooth updates

How do I do that?

1. Open Control Panel.
  1. Double-click Device Manager.
  2. Locate and double-click the Bluetooth driver that you need to update.
  3. Click the Driver tab.
  4. Click the Update Driver button.
  5. Click Search automatically for updated driver software/Uninstall

Before concluding it’s windows 10 or drivers, allow me to inform you that bluetooth 4.0, 4.2 and latest versions have a power saving feature that switch them off automatically when not connected for a certain period which might lead you to think the drivers are gone. you can always confirm through the device manager. All you need is to switch it back on using control panel or create a shortcut on your desktop
