I have an HP 14-AM038CA laptop, running 64-bit Windows 10 (Version 1607) including the March 2017 updates downloaded/installed yesterday via Windows Update.
Earlier this week, because the laptop has no built-in BlueTooth capability, I purchased a BlueTooth adapter, and connected that dongle into an available USB port.
Windows 10 does recognize the dongle, and it's visible under the "BlueTooth" branch within "Device Manager", and as a network device in the "Performance" tab of "Task Manager".
Further, the laptop successfully "pairs" with the Jabra SoleMate Mini (BlueTooth speaker).
When I turn-on the Jabra, an internal recording announces "fully charged". So, lack of electrical power is not a problem.
Of course, if I use the Jabra-supplied audio-cable to connect the laptop's audio-output headphone-jack into the Jabra, the audio does play on the Jabra -- but, that's not the "wireless-via-BlueTooth" transmission method that I want.
That audio-cable is inconveniently short -- barely 30 cm long -- so I want to use BlueTooth between the laptop and the Jabra, once it's placed into a better location.
My iPhone 4S also "pairs" successfully with the HP laptop. So, "pairing" is not a problem.
However, within Windows 10, I cannot find a way to route the audio-output from the HP into the Jabra.
I looked at "Playback Devices" tab in the "Audio" control, and found that the Jabra is not listed, and there is no (apparent) way to add the Jabra as a "playback device".
What should I do?

As you mentioned "Windows 10 does recognize the dongle, and it's visible under the "BlueTooth" branch within "Device Manager", and as a network device in the "Performance" tab of "Task Manager".
Is the dongle from HP ?
