AirPods paired but won't connect.

AirPods paired but won' connect, I tried:

-Deleting the drivers and updating them.

-Putting Bluetooth Support Service to Automatic and restarting

-Troubleshooted everything

-Tried every 'connect' button on every window I know such as:

      -Sound control panel, Devices and Printers, Bluetooth settings, Action Center (Connect button) 

       And still doesn't connect

-Scanned for hardware changes

It shows up on my Playback settings as disconnected (AirPods Stereo and AirPods Hands Free AG). Everytime I hit the connect button nothing happens.

I found that it woks if after pairing your AirPods, you open the Sound Control Panel and set the Default Device to Headphones - AirPods Pro Stereo. The AirBuds will then automatically connect when they are out of the charging case.

Found solution on another forum: 

Regedit > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{e0cbf06c-cd8b-4647-bb8a-263b43f0f974}\0000  > New "String Value" > Name it PnPCapabilities and set value 24. 

Restart your computer. Viola! 

I think it sets the Bluetooth device to never go into sleep mode, so may affect your battery life.
