I rebooted in safe mode as you suggested. I then connected to the device via Bluetooth and tested the sound. Works great! I saved device as trusted device and rebooted into normal mode and the problem is now solved. Thank you!
The speaker was a Jbl Flip 2
I will attempt to connect another set of Bluetooth headphones that I have not been able to produce sound in the past using the above method. I expect it will work... Thanks again!
