Phone to PC Bluetooth not working

So my internet is down and I want to stream audio from my phone to my computer via Bluetooth. When I try to connect on my phone it does nothing. It says it's paired as a phone on the devices dashboard. I think the PC thinks my phone is just for calls and isn't recognising it as an input Bluetooth device. I'll include a couple pictures. Any idea how to get this working?

(Pixel down at bottom, looks as if computer is recognising it as a phone)

I can see threads online of people saying they got it to work. I even did it on my old laptop without a problem.

They're for older versions of windows and don't answer my problems, why do you think I'm here?
