    Elite Series 2 on PC with no bluetooth/wireless adapter


    So I thought I would buy the Elite Series 2 controller as it looked like a great controller. IT IS NOT. I have been troubleshooting this damn thing all day when the instructions provided owith it simply say to plug it into your pc via usb-c cable LMAO! If only it were that easy. I have spoken to multiple agents today all were pretty much useless telling me to update windows and updated the xbox accessories app. I am mind-boggled as to how Microsoft can't get this controller to work on PC there are several forums with this similar issue and no sound resolution. So what i have tried:

    -updated windows to latest version

    -updated apps through microsoft store

    -went to friends house who owns xbox to update controller

    -multiple usb-c cables

    -downloaded basic xbox one controller usb drivers

    -reinstalled drivers through devmgmnt

    HOW IS A CONTROLLER THIS HARD TO GET FUNCTIONAL ON PC WHEN IT SAYS IT IS SUPPORTED. REALLY CONSIDERING PLAYSTATION AT THIS POINT THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

    Are there any specific KB updates for windows I need installed? can you provide me a link to the driver for this controller? Can you help at all besides telling me to do everything i have already done or is this controller just a piece of garbage?

    Thanks in advance

    :)

    Question about Xbox Elite 2 and wireless adapters on PC

    The Xbox wireless adapter uses the proprietary wireless radio technology built in to the Xbox controllers rather than bluetooth, which is in theory a higher performance wireless standard. If you already have a bluetooth receiver in your PC, then you don't
    need to purchase the adapter and can just sync the controller using bluetooth. Alternatively, you can connect the controller using the included USB C to USB A cable that comes with the Elite Series 2. Whether you use the bluetooth radio, or Xbox wireless adapter,
    you can absolutely sync multiple controllers to your pc via a single receiver.

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the community. How are you?

    This controller does not support xCloud. These are the controllers you can use.

    Official Xbox controllers

    Xbox Wireless Controller (Bluetooth or USB connection)

    Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 1 (USB connection only)

    Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 (Bluetooth or USB connection)

    Xbox Adaptive Controller (Bluetooth or USB connection)

    Xbox Elite Controller 2 will not connect VIA usb or Bluetooth to my pc

    The original XBox Elite controller requires the Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 so without that adapter it will not be recognized properly by Windows. The newer, Elite Series 2 can connect to a Windows 10 PC without the need of an adapter.

    Are Xbox Wireless Controller user remap profiles supported when connecting to Windows 10 PC via bluetooth? Works fine when USB

    Hi

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. I'd be happy to answer that.

    Customizing user profiles on a Windows 10 PC is not supported via Bluetooth. Any Bluetooth capable Xbox One controllers will need to be plugged in via USB-C or through the Xbox Wireless Adapter if you want to customize and use custom profiles. The Xbox Accessories
    app will not detect your controller over Bluetooth connection.

    Use the Xbox Accessories app to customize your Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2  

    Things to keep in mind:

    • The Xbox Accessories app is only available on Xbox One and Windows 10.
    • To configure the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, get the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (or later) and make sure your PC has the latest fixes.

      See how to get updates
      .
    • The Xbox Accessories app won’t detect your controller if you’re using Bluetooth to connect to your PC. Connect your controller using Xbox Wireless, or plug the included USB-C cable into the back of the Xbox Elite Wireless
      Controller Series 2 and plug the other end into your PC. For more info, see
      How to connect an Xbox One Wireless Controller to a Windows PC
      .

    I hope this helps!
