Winter Wishes Hot Drink Tag

Had some issues with my Cricut yesterday. Using my laptop when I clicked 'Make It' and it tried to connect to my Cricut I got a message indicating 'Cricut not found.' To which I said, 
"The Cricut is right there next to my computer." "Heeheehee" or should I say "HoHoHo." Well, it turns out my Cricut was not in my device list after the Windows 10 update that happened the other day. I went to settings and saw that the Bluetooth was on and I indicated off & then on but that did not help. I was able to use the Cricut with my Samsung tablet so I proved that the Bluetooth was functioning properly. Had to go into settings on my laptop and add my Cricut back into the Devices and pair it with my Bluetooth. First try at pin # on pairing was incorrect so I found my paperwork and got the pin # correct on 2nd try. I do not like updates that cause problems like this.
