Windows 10 v1709 Bluetooth A2DP codec support
Does Windows 10 v1709’s built-in Bluetooth stack (assuming you’re not using Broadcom’s WIDCOMM or BlueSoleil or CSR Harmony) come with AptX Low Latency codec? How can I tell if this codec is in use with some A2DP headphones?
I ask because my Alienware 13 R3 running Windows 10 v1709, with an Atheros QCA61x4 Bluetooth 4.1 chipset, does not have any special Qualcomm/CSR Bluetooth stack; it's just using the Microsoft Bluetooth stack; and it seems
to be using AptX Low Latency with my Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones, because the latency is very, very low.
Which would be awesome
if true, but I don't know it for sure. EDIT:
I've filed two new feature requests; https://aka.ms/Ucm9kp

Issues with bluetooth 4.0 dongle
I bought a Bluetooth 4.0 dongle from Maplin which comes with driver software. I've installed the software (which is a version of BlueSoleil) and the Bluetooth Icon appears greyed out in the taskbar (I use Windows 10). I right-click the Bluetooth icon and click "turn on Bluetooth" but nothing happens.
I've visited BlueSoleil's website for driver updates which isn't clear on what drivers I should download.
