Neither do MIDI devices. Do you think MS cares?
Midi is just data.

You need a midi generator on the receiving device in order to play back midi files. It's not a limitation on bluetooth technology, but rather an omission on modern hardware due to midi's current redundancy.

Does anybody know if the bluetooth dongle issue has been sorted out - I have dongle and latest drivers but windows 10 pro ( Version 1803 ) does not detect anything anywhere :(

Wait, what? My bro is a musician and uses MIDI stuff every day on Windows 10.
He's lucky. So many musicians and producers are sitting with keyboards and synthesizers that no longer work on Windows 10 after various updates.
