Quickly connect to a bluetooth device

Hello together,

I used Ubuntu Gnome for a long time and switched over to Fedora now. When I'm at home I pair my laptop with a bluetooth conector to hear sound from my laptop via the connector over my sound system.

To pair the connector I have to open the bluetooth settings, select the device and click the connection slider, which is a bit annoying every day.

Is there any way to modify the bluetooth panel in the top right to behave like the wifi panel? That there is a "Select Device" option where you can easily try to connect to a list of paired devices.

I searched the extensions but found nothing useful.

Thanks in advance!

I feel you brother and am searching for exactely the same. I used a program under Ubuntu/Budgie (which is based on Gnome) that did exactely that! Also with much better and more robust pairing and device management. I think it was Blueman. But this is kind of discontinued and exists for Fedora only as an alpha. Maybe give it a shot though! Edit: Just tried it: It is not really operable. Stay away from it. If you have ever come by a solution, please let me know.
