  1. Bluetooth controller won't reconnect to computer after the controller turns off?


    So when my controller turns itself off (after I'm not sure how long) while I'm making myself a sandwich, or something, I come back and it won't reconnect to my laptop, which is still on and my game is even still open and running. Is there some sort of fix to this? The only thing I've found to work is restarting my computer and re-pairing my controller; since I can't un-pair and re-pair the controller or else my whole Settings window stops working.

    :)

    Cannot reconnect xbox controller to Windows 10 PC

    Thanks for the help, it seems to be working OK now. I ran the Bluetooth troubleshooter and it said that it fixed something. Then I removed the controller from the Bluetooth menu, turned all the other Bluetooth devices off and restarted the computer. Then
    I re-paired the controller, turned it off then on again and it connected. And to answer your first question, it has worked normally before, but it has been a while since I last used the controller via Bluetooth with this computer.

    Xbox Controller

    My Xbox Wireless Controller won't connect to my Bluetooth at all but it connects by USB to my computer, it also flashes when I click the pairing button and my Bluetooth is turned on, whenever I go to the pair devices and try to pair the Xbox controller
    it doesn't show up. Is there a way I can reset the controller without the console?
    Its suppose to flash when pairing also what are you trying to pair it to

    Xbox One controller via Bluetooth

    Hi Aracely,

    So far none of your ideas worked, the best one was the Updates and Security troubleshooting but with the same results: when the controller is turned off it can't connect back, at least not immediately but after some time tries (disconnecting and reconnecting
    through the bluetooth wizard is faster). Now, I'm trying to uninstall the bluetooth device and see what happens. And for more information: I'm using a Hama bluetooth adapter 4.0. During gameplay there is no problem with the controller.

    Thanks,

    Adam

    Windows 10 Game Bar does not recognise my Elite Controller (Windows detects it and games work fine)

    I am having the same issue with a normal Xbox One controller connected via bluetooth. Worked fine until yesterday and now the game bar won't open when I press the Xbox button. As above, will open with WIN+G.

    Have tried resetting the app and reconnecting the controller but to no avail.

    The controller works fine otherwise and can be turned on/off with the Xbox button so don't see it being an issue with the button itself.

    Xbox One S controller not repairing via Bluetooth.

    It says the latest drivers are already installed. Again, I want to emphasize that the controller WILL connect through Bluetooth without a problem, it just won't reconnect without removing the device and setting it up again.
