bluetooth speaker pairing, but no sound

Q

My Bluetooth speaker works perfectly after pairing it, but when I disconnect the speaker and then want to reconnect it later, no sound is coming from the paired Bluetooth audio device anymore unless I reboot.

Never had any problems with my bluetooth mouse.
The Bluetooth speaker:
is listed in Control Panel
is connected
is set up as default
has been reinstalled
updates up to date
Device troubleshooter couldn't identify the problem
Control panel > properties device > services: audio sink & remote control
