    Cannot Un-pair Bluetooth Devices


    Is there a program that allows me to un-pair Bluetooth devices BESIDES the Bluetooth tab in PC Settings?
    I can NOT un-pair devices this way! Note that removing the device via Device Manager does NOT remove it, as it comes right back.

    I had to buy a new Bluetooth adapter to re-pair my devices, but I got THE SAME ISSUE as before, and that is this.

    If you don't know what I'm talking about, I can't do it like this:

    And before anything, yes, I'm admin. Also note there is no on/off switch. Please explain this. Thanks.

    1 month later, any suggestions?

    Basically:
    Cannot un-pair via Device Manager (just simply comes back after uninstall, removal, and re-insertion of BT dongles).
    Cannot un-pair via Bluetooth tab in Settings.

    My experience, they have to be connected before you can unpair them. The Bluetooth with Windows 8.1 is clunky. Bluetooth is a wireless interface that hasn't paid a lot of dollars to MS for a smooth user experience. My honest input.
