    How to reconnect Xbox controller to PC after using it elsewhere? (Xbox Wireless Adapter)

    you can't tell me that unpairing and repairing is required every time just to get my controller to work again with the device it was already connected to
    I'm no expert. But that might actually be the case. I have the same issue switching bluetooth xbox controllers from my xbox one to my laptop. I think that is just how they are made to only have one pairing at a time.

    XBox Controller won't connect with Bluetooth after connecting with USB

    Solution 4 is the re-pairing procedure that I have to go through when the problem occurs. I've already tried everything else on this page and re-pairing is the only thing that works.

    The problem is, that I need to do this EVERY time I recharge the battery on the controller. The Bluetooth connection fails consistently after connecting with a USB cable - it does seem as though there's an issue with the controller's driver that it gets
    confused by the same controller connecting in two different ways, or something like that.

    I do have a workaround but after spending the best part of £100 on a genuine Microsoft controller and genuine Microsoft battery, I shouldn't have to be resorting to annoying and time consuming workarounds on a regular basis just to connect the thing. For
    such a premium device, it really should just work. If it was a one-off problem, OK, these things happen. If it happened occasionally, it would be a bit
    [Mod removed- inappropriate]. The fact it happens EVERY time is unacceptable.

    Terrible YouTube app update!

    The Xbox One / Youtube app has lost the functionality to preserve pairing. I really enjoyed this previously - but now every time I want to use my computer / phone with my Xbox One I have to redo the pairing every time. Not cool!

    Xbox One Controller forgetting bluetooth pairing after being plugged in.

    the controller will always remain paired to the console without issue.
    Hi,

    There is a very good reason for this. On the console, the controller doesn't use Bluetooth, it uses its own proprietary wireless connection. The original Xbox One controllers didn't have Bluetooth on release and could only be connected via a micro USB cable,
    the newer controllers have the BT feature, but still work with the original Xbox One (think Xbox One Fat 2013).

    It can't re-pair automatically because it has two types of wireless sync technologies built in. The only way I believe you can make the controller sync automatically would be via the Xbox One Gaming receiver for Windows 10. The receiver doesn't use Bluetooth.

    I hope that makes sense.

    That's interesting information, but it's still an issue.

    When I plug my phone into my PC, it doesn't forget the bluetooth pairing. Plugged in or not I can use the phone companion app just fine, and I don't have to re-pair it when I unplug it.

    When I pair a soundbar to my PC, it works just as well as when I unplug it and use it through bluetooth, and again no re-pairing needed.

    When I plug in my Sennheiser wireless headphones to charge it, it's still paired to my PC through bluetooth when I unplug it.

    For some unknown reason when you plug in an Xbox One controller, it or Windows 10 (or both) deletes or resets the bluetooth profile associated with it, which requires Windows 10 to pair with it again. It's the only device I know of that loses bluetooth pairing
    because you plugged it in. Having two different radio technologies is not an excuse. It would make sense if I was connecting the controller to the PC through bluetooth and then plugging it into an Xbox, but that isn't the case. I don't even have an Xbox anymore.

    The controller/Windows 10 has no real reason for clearing/resetting the bluetooth profile when plugging the controller in.

    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
