How to Connect Your Xbox Controller to a PC
If you like gaming on your Windows computer and prefer to use an Xbox controller, you’re not alone. Fortunately, you can easily connect an Xbox controller to a PC. Enjoy the functionality of your favorite controller when you connect your Xbox controller to your PC with one of these easy methods.
Connect your Xbox controller to your PC
If you’re wondering how to connect your Xbox controller to your laptop, we have you covered. It’s easy, and you have options. Here are three ways to get gaming with the computer and Xbox controller combo you like best.
If you want to use Bluetooth to connect your Xbox controller to your PC, your computer will need to have the Windows 10 Anniversary Update or later. It’s easy to figure out which version of Windows you are running. If you haven’t yet, upgrade to Windows 11 for the best gaming experience on Windows.
To pair your Xbox controller using Bluetooth, follow these steps:
- Press Xbox on the controller to turn the controller on.
- Hold Pair for three seconds. The Xbox button will light up and start flashing.
- Select Start on your computer. The Start button looks like four squares.
- With the Start panel open in Windows 11, select Settings > Bluetooth & devices.
- Toggle the Bluetooth option on.
- Select Add device to find and add your Xbox controller.
If Xbox Wireless is your preferred connection method, follow these steps:
- Hold down Xbox on your controller for three seconds until the Xbox button starts flashing.
- Press and hold the Pair button on your controller. When the Xbox button starts flashing more quickly, that means the controller is searching for your PC.
- Select Start on your computer.
- Select Settings > Bluetooth & devices.
- Select Add device.
- Find your controller by selecting Everything else.
- From here, choose either Xbox Wireless Controller or Xbox Elite Wireless Controller. When your controller is connected to your PC, the Xbox button will stay lit.
To use a mini-USB to connect your Xbox controller to your PC, here’s what you’ll need to do:
- Plug one end of a mini-USB into the port on your controller.
- Plug the other end of the cord into your PC’s mini-USB port.
- If your computer still isn’t connecting to your controller, press the Xbox button.
Depending on your computer setup, you may want to consider getting a longer mini-USB cable for more comfortable playing.
Why won’t my Xbox controller connect to my PC?
If your device won’t connect, here are a few actions you can take to fix the issue:
- Make sure your device is fully charged. If the batteries in your controller are low or dead, you’ll need to replace or recharge them.
- Ensure your computer’s Bluetooth is turned on. Even if your controller is turned on, it won’t be able to connect to your computer if Bluetooth is turned off.
- Make sure your computer software is compatible with your controller. To use Bluetooth to connect your Xbox controller to a PC, your computer must be running the Windows 10 Anniversary Update or later.
- Keep your controller close to your computer. Wireless controllers have a connectivity range of about 19-28 ft.
- Update your controller. Keep your controller up to date to make sure its compatibility and capabilities are fully optimized.
Windows 11 Gaming
If you want to connect your Xbox controller to your Windows 11 PC, get ready for the best gaming experience yet with Xbox Game Pass for a small monthly fee. From Minecraft and FIFA 22 video game to Monster Hunter Rise and Forza Horizon 5, there’s no shortage of ways to play.
Connecting your Xbox controller to a PC is fast and easy. Now that you know how to pair your Xbox controller with your PC, let the games begin!
Should I buy a new Xbox controller for PC? — Hardware on DTF
Spent a day with a new controller from Xbox Series X|S in conjunction with a PC, and I have something to tell.
On November 9, gamepads from the Xbox Series X|S began to be sold, I have long wanted a gamepad for the PC, but I decided that it makes no sense to take the old Xbox controller, and everything is not very clear with the new one. It is clear that there are few changes, but still a new generation, it is interesting to try. There were several main questions:
1) How will the gamepad interface with the PC?
2) Do I need a proprietary Xbox for PC adapter?
3) Is there any difference when connecting via Bluetooth and a proprietary Xbox adapter?
I found out that the previous generation controller connects via Bluetooth and adapter in the same way, so I decided not to buy an adapter right away, but to take only a gamepad, play via wire, and then buy regular Bluetooth, yet it is more versatile than an Xbox adapter. For some reason, I thought that there was a wire in the kit …
Source: https://www. xbox.com/
Now available in 3 primary colors: Black – bundled with Xbox Series X, white – bundled with Xbox Series S, blue – sold separately. I bought white. I opened the box and was surprised that the gamepad was smaller than it seemed in the photos on the Internet, and was upset that there were no wires in the kit. There were only batteries, instructions and Game Pass for 14 days.
I don’t have a lot of wires, with Type-c there is only a charger from a macbook (Type-c on both sides) and a wire from headphones. Well, I remembered that the motherboard has Type-c, so I managed to connect it through a charger from a poppy. Otherwise, I would have to order Bluetooth and wait a few more days. Pay attention to this when buying. On the wire, by the way, everything works without batteries.
Now about the gamepad itself
The triggers and the lower part of the base are textured – not everyone likes this, there are people who have sensitive hands, they cannot touch peaches. But the texture of the controller, to be honest, does not look like peaches. She’s big and rough, not very nice, yes. But I expected something velvety when it came to peaches. If you move your hands on the gamepad, focusing on the sensations, then there is little pleasant, but during the game everything is OK, you don’t pay attention.
I also did not like the cross, when playing fighting games for a long time, the finger is rubbed. It is made of rough plastic, I would like a more pleasant material.
The main difference between the new controller and the old one is that the share button does not work on PC, although it is possible to take screenshots through the Xbox Live menu. Perhaps they will finish it with updates later.
I played Injustice 2, Doom Eternal, GTA V and Forza Horizon 4. There is almost no vibration in Injustice 2, sometimes the gamepad responds very weakly, but at what moments this happens, I still don’t understand. In Forza Horizon 4, the tactile feedback is fully revealed, everything vibrates, the degree of pressing the triggers is felt, it’s especially cool when you shake for a long time on a dirt road, and then you leave on the asphalt – it’s a thrill. In GTA V and Doom Eternal, vibration is turned on less often, but still good. Even with PS4, I like it when in GTA V you touch the edge of the curb, and the gamepad starts to vibrate a lot – cool.
You can take it now, but do not forget about the wire with USB Type-c or Bluetooth. Plus, the gamepad works with Android, and iOS support will appear in the future, suddenly, someone needs it.
What controller do you use with your PC and will you get a new one from Xbox Series X|S? Write in the comments 🙂

How to determine the revision and model by box
Each box with a gamepad has a sticker that indicates the revision and model.
The number on the right is the revision. In this example, 1708 means that the third revision gamepad is in the box. On the left, TF5-00004 indicates the model, in this example it is a standard white gamepad. Don’t be confused by the fact that “MODEL” is written opposite the revision, and not opposite the model, this is not a mistake. Also, the revision number is indicated on the sticker in the battery compartment.
Externally, it is very easy to distinguish gamepad revisions.
If there is no 3.5 mm headphone jack at the bottom, then the 1st revision.
In turn, the 2nd from the 3rd differ in the detail on which the Xbox button is located (top center on the front side). In the 2nd revision, this part is separate from everything else, and in the 3rd it is one with the front panel. In the examples below, this detail is black and white, respectively.
The same difference from a different angle.
She has one more button. Look for the oblong Share button in the very center. It can also be identified by the absence of concavity in the upper part of the front panel and the round cross.
What is Nottingham and Crete?
Nottingham – black gamepad, Crete – white. There are no additional features in these notations.
Will the Xbox One controller work with the Xbox Series? What is compatible with what?
All models of all revisions are compatible with all Xbox One and Xbox Series X and S consoles.
What is that oblong connector at the bottom of the gamepad?
Proprietary (not used by other companies) connector for connecting a proprietary headset.
