Windows 7: Intel Dual Band Wireless AC-8260 - audio issue

Intel Dual Band Wireless AC-8260 - audio issue

I am running an HP ProBook 440 with Window 7 Pro SP1 64bit. It has an Intel Dual Band Wireless AC-8260 for Bluetooth. I am trying to stream audio from the laptop to a Bose Soundlink Bluetooth Speaker. The laptop and the speaker are connecting but audio remains on the laptop speakers. I've looked through the properties for the Bluetooth devices in the device manager. Is there, and if so, where do i find, a configuration to turn on the audio portion of the wireless device? Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Not sure, but it may be the Bluetooth needs to be set as the Default Playback device.
That is found in Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel, Playback section.

Hi one thing comes to mind is to check the default play back device is set to. Post a screen shot of the playback device window.

Sorry for the delay responding. After seeing both responses did a little more testing. I have the Bose device saying connected and now the config is showing the laptop is connected to the Bose device and is the default. When i crank up iTunes to test, the sound is still going through the in-case speakers, not the default device.

I've attached screenshots of the sound tab configs.

As always, thanks in advance for your help.
