Anyone else's Bluetooth using Microsoft drivers instead of Intel Bluetooth?

I go into sound settings and my headphones drivers say Microsoft 10.0.22621.1 despite the fact i have Intel Bluetooth 23.0.010 installed. Also have under Networks Devices a Bluetooth Personal Area Network which I don't trust.

It looks like my headset is using a version of Windows.  The Intel Bluetooth uses the driver you should expect.

I don't use the Bluetooth Personal Area Network, so I am not aware of exactly what it does.  You might right click and disable it to see what happens.

I disabled the bluetooth area network.  i was looking at the Intel Bluetoooth 23.0.0.10 driver and its has a tab for firmware i dont ever remember seeing before. I didn't even think Bluetooth drivers had firmware.  

Firmware Vendor: Unknown

Firmware Date: Unknown 

Firmware Version: 3717a02f1601002417

I think it's that stupid Intel  Pro/ Wireless Software which Intel said is obsolete now.

Or the very stupid decision to install Driver Booster and install wrong drivers.

There are probably many things in the Device Manager we have not noticed.  My firmware version is different from yours but if you check the Advanced tab in properties, where it shows LMP 12, or whatever yours shows, that is the Bluetooth version, such as Bluetooth 5.2 or 4.x or earlier.

Yeah I have Bluetooth 5.2 and its working but the sound quality id pretty bad. So I went searching adn found out here is an app with a free trial that will let you use Sony's LDAC codec up to 24-bit and 9600KhZ.

It was very easy once I downloaded the app but I couldn't tell much difference unlike when I use my Samsung S23Ultra and it sounds amazing.

But I have really nice bookshelf speakers that I connect with a Toslink cable to listen to music. I only actually use Bluetooth on Windows when I'm watching porn.

And no one needs hi-rez audio just so some wasted porn star can scream DON"T STOP! DONT STOP! F*ck that p*ssy!(or something much much worse from a fetish category you cant seem to break free from) so loud at 3am that it scares you limp and worried it woke your whole family up. 😅
