If you have a USB dongle, just unplug it and plug it back in. If you have a laptop, there should be a button you can hit. The other option would be to find it in the device manager, right click on it, and hit enable.

If the bluetooth software happens to be WIDCOMM (Applicable to other bluetooth softwares as well such as BROADCOM etc)

Go to C:\Program Files\WIDCOMM\Bluetooth Software and double click BTTray.exe.You will find the bluetooth icon on the system tray.
You may turn on the adaptor by right clicking on the icon.
