    Hi

    Unfortunately, you will need to get the wireless USB receiver as the Xbox 360 controllers do not have Bluetooth connectivity

    and what does the connect button do on controller?
    The connect button starts the pairing process with a Xbox 360 console or the Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows.

    The Xbox 360 controller uses a proprietary wireless protocol, and NOT Bluetooth. So the standard wireless devices in your computer can't work with the Xbox 360 wireless controller.

    You absolutely definitely need the Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows if you wish to use your Xbox 360 controller on your PC.

    Make sure you do NOT get the Wireless Gaming Receiver for Xbox One controllers, as they won't work with Xbox 360 controllers.

    Also if you try to use a Play & Charge USB cable on your Xbox 360 controller, this will also not work, as the Play & Charge cable ONLY carries power, but does NOT transmit controller data.

    So if you don't want to buy a wireless receiver, your only options are to buy a dedicated wired Xbox 360 controller (that has a non-removable USB cord attached), or get a Xbox One controller with Bluetooth functionality.

    I dont thing the 360 controllers have the updated bluetooth that newer computers use so you might not be able to use a 360 controller wireless, might just have to buy a usb cord for it
    I don't think this will work - IIRC the wireless controllers port was only to charge them and not to connect them to the device, so it would charge the controller, but not actually connect it to the PC.

    I was about to buy my 360 receiver for like $5 off of Amazon a few years ago.
