Connecting your Xbox controller to your PC opens up a whole new world of gaming possibilities. Whether you prefer gaming on a console or a computer, being able to use your Xbox controller on your PC provides a seamless experience. In this guide, we will walk you through the process of connecting your Xbox controller to your PC, both through Bluetooth and using a wireless adapter.
Connect via Bluetooth If your PC has built-in Bluetooth capabilities, connecting your Xbox controller is as easy as a few simple steps. First, go to Settings on your PC and navigate to Devices > Bluetooth. Make sure Bluetooth is turned on. Then, turn on your Xbox controller and hold the Guide button to power it on. Next, hold the Pairing button for three seconds until the Xbox logo begins flashing. Your PC should detect the controller, and you can select it to complete the pairing process.
Connect Your Xbox Controller to PC With Bluetooth For PCs without built-in Bluetooth, you can still connect your Xbox controller using a Bluetooth dongle. Hold the Guide button on your controller to turn it on and then hold the Pairing button for three seconds until the Xbox logo starts flashing. Plug the Bluetooth dongle into your PC, and it should automatically detect the controller. Follow any on-screen prompts to complete the pairing process.
