    How to enable Bluetooth for Windows Guest OS?

    MacBook Pro 2019 with Bluetooth has no mention of Bluetooth shown in Parallels Control Center Options, so no Bluetooth in Windows Guest OS.

    "Hardware > USB" is shown but "Hardware > USB & Bluetooth" is NOT SHOWN. Also there is no Bluetooth icon or option shown in Windows Action Center (even after clicking Expand).

    Parallels Dekstop for Mac
    App Store Edition
    Version 1.5.0 (20116)

    macOS Catalina up to date.

    Hello, Parallels Desktop for Mac App Store Edition doesn't have an option to share Bluetooth devices with Windows
    Please check this KB article for more information.

    I struggled for hours before stumbling across the solution. go the parallels desktop mini icon in the top bar of your Mac and click configure, then click on the lock to unlock and click "+" and select "usb & bluetooth" then click lock again and everything will start again.

    Even if the Notifications & actions settings are set the right way, you still need to check Bluetooth Settings. Click Start > Settings > Devices > Bluetooth & other devices. Under Related settings, click More Bluetooth Options. Select the Options tab and check Show the Bluetooth icon in the notification area.
    Greetings,
