    Cannot open Bluetooth settings


    I cannot access my Bluetooth setting via the Taskbar. When clicking on the 'Open Settings' link nothing opens. Is there a fix for this? Bluetooth also does not show up in the Control Panel. I want to ensure that my Bluetooth connection is not open/ visible to everyone.
