Just bought a cheapo 15.5 Vaio with Windows 8 pre-loaded. I was able to pair it with a Philips wireless headset and it was great.
Thing is, each time I want to use this headset, I need to do this trackpad "Swipe" thing, click on Settings, then click on Change PC Settings, click on Devices from left menu bar and then on the right a list of deives including "PHilips SHB9100 - Offline" will appear. I can finally now click on it to do the bluetooth connection. That's 5 actions/clicks to re-connect a previously paired device. Very Microsoft!
Is there a shortcut to do the above more easily? In this scenario, all I need to do is (1) magic Swipe, (2) click on Devices and re-connect my device. That's only 2-3 actions.
At the moment, if I click on Devices after Swiping, the only thing listed is "Second Screen" and some other times "Microsoft XPS Document writer."
Thanks for any help you can bring.
