    Not seeing the "X" when you roll-over?

    unfortunately No, I will provide a picture, might be because the devices are not connected?, but I don´t have the X to delete them.

    fix it, bluetooth needs to be enable/activated so you can delete any devices.
    Thanks for your help

    Related problem?

    Every time I click the "X" icon to delete a bluetooth device, it just tries to pair with it again, does not find it, and errors out.
    Earlier, tried to do it with the "ThinkPad Laser Mouse." You can see the timeout error on the first image.

    Then I rolled over "mcarden's Mouse," and you can see that state in the first image as well.

    Then I clicked the "X" rollover, and got the "connecting" icon state on the second image.

    Have you tired resetting BT...?

    Turn off BT in System Preferences and then delete the two Bluetooth plists... com.apple.bluetooth

    They are found in ~/Library/Preferences/By Host and Library/Preferences

    Empty Trash and then reboot. This will completely reset your BT and you should then be able to add/amend your devices again.
