    How does one delete a controller/accessory?


    How do I delete an accessory ? Bought an “Elite” controller just yesterday but the profile toggle is now switched backwards. To be more clear, if the switch on the device is set to 1 the on the system it says profile 2 is selected and vice
    a versa. I believe this has something to do with the fact that there is 2 default profiles that populate when the controller is 1st linked to the system. To make matters a bit worse u can’t delete or remove either or these default profiles without creating
    a new profile. But once u do create an new 1 and just press B to go back to the accessories screen the system selects the default into the profile slot that u just created which automatically switches the toggle to the incorrect position. How does any of this
    get fixed? Is there a way to work around the issue? Why does the problem exist in the 1 place?

    Hello Dan,

    Thank you for posting on Xbox Forums. Just to clarify, are the switches on the controller swapped? And if so, have you tried this support article for

    Configuring the Elite controller
    ? It should provide some more info on how you might be able to resolve the issue.

    You may also want to Assign the Controller to your profile as suggested by Ambassador SA1NT 0F LI3S.

    If you have any other questions please feel free to reply back letting us know. Thank you again for posting on Xbox Forums.

    I believe you want to assign a controller to a specific account. To do this please follow the steps below:

    1. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
    2. Select Settings.
    3. Select All Settings.
    4. Under Kinect & devices, select Devices & accessories.
    5. Select the controller. The current account assigned to that controller is indicated.
    6. To assign the controller to another account, select the account currently assigned to it.
    7. Select Assign to someone.
    8. Select the account that you want to assign to the controller.
    This will pair the controller to this account.

    How does one delete a controller/accessory?

    Not at all wht i'm trying to do. Read the question please. I went onto great detail explaining the whole situation. I was on the phone with xbox support for just short of 2hrs yesterday the 2nd person I spoke to, came up with, my controller
    won't run the update that's required for the firmware. Which is the reason for the "TOGGLE" in the center of the controller that's physically on the elite controller that changes the "Button Mapping Profile" to be on the opposite selection from the physically
    selected option on the controller itself. I hope that clears up any confusion. If u have any questions feel free to email me.

    The Toggle selector is flipped from wht the screen shows vs wht the physical controller has selected.
