    Do you want to try Dynamic Lock on Windows 10, but the Settings app won't let you connect your phone? Try this workaround to connect your Bluetooth device and complete the setup.

    Microsoft recently rolled out Windows 10 build 15031 to the Fast ring as a minor update part of the Creators Update. Among the new changes, the company officially introduced Dynamic Lock, which is a security feature that allows Windows 10 to automatically lock your device based on the proximity of your phone paired using Bluetooth.
    The idea is simple if your phone is no longer near your computer, Windows 10 waits 30 seconds, and then turn off the display and locks your PC.
    Although Dynamic Lock is available now for testing, a bug in the Settings app is not letting users access the Devices page to pair their phones and complete the setup. Microsoft is aware of the issue, and it's planning to have this problem fixed probably in the next flight. However, you can still test the security feature on Windows 10 build 15031. You just need to connect your phone using Control Panel.
    In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the steps to connect your phone using Bluetooth in Control Panel, and then use the Settings app to enable Dynamic Lock.
