Windows 7: USB Bluetooth Dongle

USB Bluetooth Dongle

I have a USB Bluetooth Dongle that I used to use in Vista and XP, where it was simply plug and play. Then all I had to do was go to Control Panel and there would be a Bluetooth icon where I can add other Bluetooth devices. But after plugging it in Windows 7, there's no such icon when I go into Control Panel. When I first plugged it in, Windows 7 automatically and successfully installed the drivers for it. But since there's no way, or at least that I know off, of how to add a device to my computer on Windows 7, I tried searching for my computer on my mobile phone so that I can add it in my devices. But my mobile phone can't find my computer. How do I add other Bluetooth devices to my Windows 7 system? I even tried going into services.msc and setting Bluetooth Support Service to Automatic and starting it, but I'm still not able to add my mobile phone to my computer. Any help would be much appreciated.

EDIT: Nevermind, I just simply typed in Bluetooth in the search pane on the start menu and there was an option to add a device. LOL!

Yeah, I thought I already did that by putting Solved in my reason for editing my post. Because I just tried to go into the advanced editing options and there's no Prefix window by the title of my thread where I can select Solved.
