      In my experience USB bluetooth in Windows can work, but it can be flaky. If you're using Windows 10, go to Settings -> Devices -> Add Bluetooth or other device. See if your USB receiver is listed there.

      Have you used Bluetooth before?
      In Windows and other OS, using a Bluetooth device the first time requires some work. But after that it is easy.
      Here is a reference that might help:
      Connect a Bluetooth device
      Applies to: Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10
      You can connect all kinds of Bluetooth devices to your PC—including keyboards, mice, phones, speakers, and a whole lot more. To do this, your PC will need to have Bluetooth. Some PCs, such as laptops and tablets, have Bluetooth built in. If your PC doesn’t, you can plug a USB Bluetooth adapter into the USB port on your PC to get it. To get started with using Bluetooth, you’ll need to pair your Bluetooth device with your PC.
      Does that help?   :)

        Does this mean you cannot turn off/turn on Bluetooth in the action center?
