I have Microsoft Windows 10, 64-bit installed on a desktop PC.  The
motherboard does not have Bluetooth capability.

I purchased a Logitech H800 Wireless Headset from Best Buy:

<https://www.bestbuy.com/site/logitech-h800-wireless-headset-black/3436994.p?skuId=3436994>

It came with its own plug-and-play USB nano receiver which was already
paired with the headset.  Everything works just fine.

According to the specs posted by Best Buy, the wireless connectivity
between the headset and the USB nano receiver is via Bluetooth.

So, why is there no Bluetooth icon in the PC's taskbar?  Would such icon
appear only if the motherboard had Bluetooth capability?
