How to fix no sound in Bluetooth headset on Windows 10

Bluetooth devices, like USB devices, connect easily and universally. The trick is often to repair a machine but once that is done, the machine will work properly. There is nothing to be established after the fact. If the device has additional controls, you may need to install an app for it but it will still perform its primary function.
