Are you able to find a model number anywhere? Looks like it's worn off the front, but maybe there's a sticker somewhere?

What OS? Windows 10 has a functional BT driver baked in... but it'll depend on the age/revision of either of those 'dongles'

If the basic BT driver within Windows 10 doesn't pick anything up, and you cannot determine a model number....I can't think of any non-destructive way to identify a driver.

If you were really curious, you could disassemble and identify the chip being used within the dongle - and from there, could source a driver from the chip manufacturer directly (assuming they're not of such vintage that a driver for modern OS doesn't exist).
