Bluetooth Icon Is Not Showing on Windows 10 in Taskbar / Notification

The Bluetooth icon in the taskbar can be used to quickly connect to the devices. I accidentally deleted the icon and could not find any option in the taskbar settings to bring it back. This is how you can resolve the issue when the Bluetooth icon does not appear in the taskbar or notification on Windows 10. My computer does not have a built-in Bluetooth, but I use a Bluetooth dongle. But this method will also work for built-in Bluetooth.
