    Wireless Display on Series S - can’t get my controller to function as mouse or gamepad for...


    I did some searching and haven’t been able to find any relevant posts in the last two years. I just got a new Series S and I’m trying to use the Wireless Display feature with my PC to play Steam games and do other tasks using my TV. The Xbox connects to my PC just fine, but I can’t get the controller to work as a mouse or gamepad. I did check the box on my PC allowing for input. Has anyone else tried this? Are there any steps I might be missing? Should I report this as a potential bug?

    My Controller is Severely Messing up my PC in every game I play with it.

    That’s not a controller issue, the Xbox Wireless Controllers don’t have a reputation for obliterating computers. My controllers, which include the Series X|S version and the Xbox One version, both connect and work fine with it.

    (With the exception of the Series X|S controller being almost completely unusable right now for me, due to firmware bugs. But even with those bugs, it didn’t screw up my computer or the game I was playing.)

    Maybe the game you’re trying to play doesn’t have gamepad support?

    Xbox keyboard and mouse?

    I think the specifics of the question aren't about using mouse and keyboard, but rather if you can use a keyboard and mouse that operate via a wireless dongle.

    That is, plug dongle into Xbox, then mouse and keyboard comme t to dongle, wirelessly.

    I'm not sure that this works, though.

    Upon looking at support site, which specifically states WIRED USB keyboard and mouse, so I'm unsure

    EDIT: , there may in fact be models supported by console that are wireless, but not just any wireless keyboard will function so check first

    Can´t wait to play it. Loved the first 2 games of the series. Also the function to control every NPC you wan´t sounds really awesome!

    wireless mouse

    I have an XBOX ONE and i was just wondering if there was a way to use a wireless mouse with the console . there are times it would be easier to use than the controller. thank you for listening to my question.
    In the November Update, keyboard and mouse support is enabled for the games Minecraft, Warframe and Fortnite only.

    As for wireless mice: You can't "directly" connect a standard wireless mouse to the console. Most wireless mice come with a small USB dongle, that provides the wireless connection. You can simply plug that USB dongle into the console's USB port(s) (if necessary
    use a USB hub), and the wireless mouse can be used in games that support the mouse.

    In all other games, the mouse will not work.
