    If you have the drivers installed, an option will show up in Settings > Devices

    Ok, I can't find any Bluetooth what so ever :-(
    I assumed that it would be a part of the windows 10 installation but apparently it is not.
    Do you know where to find the correct driver and information about how to install it?

    Well, there is a WiFi -Bluetooth Driver listed in the Dell Updates section.

    I went to dell download and found the driver together with some other recomended updates.
    Now all works just fine :-)

    In the device manager, you can uninstall the Bluetooth driver (choose option to remove from computer, or something to that affect). Then do a scan for new hardware. That's all I had to do, Bluetooth picked up immediately after that. Pretty stupid problem to have, but you can get through it.
