Windows 10 May 2019 Update problems: how to fix them
On these machines, after installing the above-mentioned patch, May 2019 Update users may indeed find that their Bluetooth speaker will no longer connect to their PC, or if it does connect, the audio quality will be rather poor. Windows 10 patch need much attention as it was something that should not have happened.
A third problematic scenario that has been described by Microsoft in its support document is that the Bluetooth speaker may indeed connect, but the sound may rather come out of the PC’s internal speaker, rather than the Bluetooth device.

Windows 10 has technologically proved well by dealing with the problem that crops up efficiently.
