Bluetooth devices lost

Hello. I recently bought a Dell KM717 wireless keyboard and mouse. The USB method did not work well enough so I connected via Bluetooth, which worked fine. However, after I accidentally removed the keyboard from the GNOME Bluetooth list it does not reappear at all. I found some traces of the configuration in the cache folder in /usr/lib/bluetooth, but the MAC address does not even appear in bluetoothctl as far as I can see. Furthermore, both devices are now invisible to Windows (I have dual boot) as well as to my tablet, although the mouse still works fine in Fedora. It seems as if I have corrputed something. Is there any way to reclaim the devices? (I'm running Fedora 26.)

I add this as a comment, because I don't know if it's the correct answer or not. Recently, I had some problems with a bluetooth mouse but note that I use KDE.

So, what I did:

I verified that the mouse was removed from the KDE list of devices Restarted bluetooth and Network Manager Run the bluetoothctl as root. Removed the device Restarted again NM and bluetooth

Started the process of adding a new bluetooth device from scratch.

I might had to go in and then back to graphical, but I am not sure.
