I am having nothing but frustration with Boot Camp. Now, I have the following problem.

I have a Logitech MX Anywhere 2 mouse which I am unsuccessfully trying to connect in Windows 10.

Windows 10 recognizes the mouse, but it simply cannot connect.

The mouse works perfectly under macOS, so it is not a problem with this particular device.

A USB mouse works fine under Windows, so it does not appear to be a problem with mouse drivers.

My Apple Mobile Keyboard also connected fine with Windows on bluetooth, so it does not seem to be a problem with bluetooth drivers as well.

I've read in Internet forums that several people had problems with this mouse connecting to Windows 10 on Boot Camp.

I tried reinstalling Boot Camp drivers (without uninstalling any previous driver) and it did not work.

I tried resetting NVRAM memory and it didn't work.

I tried to disconnect it on macOS and it didn't work either.

Does anybody else has a similar problem? Is it a problem with this particular device? Do I have to buy another bluetooth mouse, or none will work?

Thanks for the help.

Had the same problem, SMC and (!) NVRAM reset solved it for me.

No harm in doing both. I tend to do both together, and I read in these forums that system updates may sometimes need one or the other reset after installing an update.

I have just installed an update to Boot Camp (which updated the bluetooth driver) and the bluetooth mouse was recognized by Windows 10.
