    Default Bluetooth - Allow a device to connect is greyed out

    M11R2:
    I have a camera with bluetooth. I have to do Fn F3 before sending a picture EVERY time or the bluetooth connections fails.
    Is this related to the fact that when I right click on the bluetooth taskbar icon, "Allow a device to connect" is greyed out? Why is it greyed out?

    (I just reinstalled the bluetooth drivers from Dell - R226746 - because I have not used my bluetooth on the M11R2 for several months).
    I see in a Google search that "Allow a device to connect" being greyed out is a common problem, but there were no solutions.

    Its common.

    What if you do the normal route of "Add a device."

    Then make your bluetooth camera discoverable. They should see each other at that point.

    Yes, the camera is recognized by the laptop already so I don't need to add it...was just wondering why the right-click entry is greyed out.
    Not important, really.

    It is weird, no doubt.
