playing laptop audio through streambar

I'm trying to connect my Windows 10 PC (Dell) to play audio on my Streambar. (The Streambar is connected to the TV by HDMI.) The laptop appears in the Bluetooth channel in the Streambar, though it looks grayed out and I can't click on it.  in the laptop's Bluetooth & Other Devices, the Streambar says "Connected" while other bluetooth devices (earbuds), which are turned off, say "Paired." What else do I need to do?

Did you add the laptop to the Streambar under Settings->Remotes & devices?

Re: playing laptop audio through streambar

Thanks renojim. Strangely, when I went back to add it again in the Roku settings (it had appeared before) it didn't find the laptop. BUT, when I went into the laptop bluetooth and other devices settings, it now says it's paired to the Roku, and I was able to play audio through it.

Gremlins. Hopefully they stay away now.
