Windows 7: Bluetooth headphones: no sound

Bluetooth headphones: no sound

I have Bluetooth headphones that I have been using with my desktop Win7 machine successfully for about one year. Now all the sudden without my having changed anything, I get no sound out of them.

When I turn them on, Windows recognizes them and shows that they are connected, but when I play audio, the sound comes out of my desk speakers and not the headphones.

The headphones work correctly with my laptop.

Please advise how to troubleshoot. Thank you.

Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel. In the Playback section there should be an incon for the headset and selecting that for the default playback device should give you headset sound.

That has to have been the quickest resolution I've ever had! Thank you - they work now!
