    Xbox adaptive controller - control PC outside games


    Hi,

    Is it possible to configure the Xbox adaptive controller to perform commands like ctrl + C,

    Ctrl+shift+alt+D and maybe even entire sequences of commands (Macros) to be able to control the Windows operating system and other software and not only video games?

    I suffer from repetitive stress injury and are looking into replacing as many commands in my workday as possible with pedals I can control with my feet instead of being dependent on a keyboard. It will mainly be used for Photoshop and various 3D Softwares.

    Thanks in advance

    :)

    Thank you for your reply!

    For anybody else finding this Forum thread looking for this solution and with the same problem - I found a product called Soft step KeyworkX. a music pedal capable of this kind of Configurations. it's however rather expensive and don't seem to have ability
    to add more pedals the same way Xbox adaptive controller does.

    I've provided my request to the Microsoft idea's section. Please vote for it here https://xboxideas.uservoice.com/for...99-xbox-adaptive-controller-basic-pc-controls

    No, it's not possible at the moment, but not a bad idea. You should post it on the ideas site here xboxideas.uservoice.com

    Xbox One Controller - PC

    If you have the adapter you can easily play on PC. Most games do include controller support as well.

    However you would have to check if each game has controller support *Most do now a days outside of tiny indie games*

    Using XBOX adaptive controller for PC

    Hey there Roy,

    Yes the Xbox Adaptive Controller is compatible with Windows 10 computers and also with Windows 8.1 & Windows 7 Pc's but will have limited functionality. Click on the following link for different ways to

    Connect the Xbox Adaptive Controller to a PC
    .

    Once you have connected the controller then you can go ahead and
    Customize the Xbox Adaptive Controller
    in the Xbox Accessories app and remap the buttons on the controller. The two circular pads on the controller are simply buttons, they do not have any tech that will allow you to use swiping features to type or to be
    used as the cursor for the PC.

    When Gaming on a PC using the Adaptive controller you should still see the on-screen keyboard to type messages, You would then use the d-pad or joysticks to type just as you would with a standard Xbox One Controller.

    The adaptive controller should respond to a toe's touch as the buttons on it are pretty sensitive. In order to get more functionality you can attach different devices using the 3.5mm ports on the back of the controller so that you can then Map these to specific
    functions. You can take a look at the following support article for more information on

    Connecting external devices to the Xbox Adaptive Controller
    .

    I hope this helps.
