I've had that problem for years running USB bluetooth and wireless dongles off a long USB extension cord. Happened with both Win7 and Win10, so I figured it was most likely the long cord.

In terms of my bluetooth speaker, as a last resort, I've had to do what you described above. But more often, all I need to do is physically reset my speaker in one of two ways. Only takes a few seconds of holding a button down on the speaker... pretty painless.

But with the other wireless dongles (keyboard and mouse), I merely switch the dongle to another open USB port. Possibly corrosion is a factor, not sure.

This stuff is slightly annoying, but a quick fix on the whole, and far easier than removing and re-adding a device in settings (ugh).
