  1. Xbox Controller is Connected to PC But Won't Work in the Xbox App


    My controller is plugged into the PC and the guide button works but the controller won't work in games. I have a PS4 controller that is working fine but not the Xbox one. Windows Update says the driver in the controller is up to date.

    Can't get Xbox Accessories app to see my Elite 2 controller on Windows 10

    Just checking on status. Yes I'm connecting to the PC via the provided cable with my Elite Controller. My PC is upstairs and my Xbox is down stairs. When I turn on my controller on the PC it still turns on my xbox down stairs.

    The main issue is the Xbox Accessory App won't work and I cannot configure my paddles.

    I use USB to do this. It won't work anyway with Bluetooth.

    How can I get the app working? I've ran through many suggestion that were on other forums.

    I've rebooted

    Uninstalled Reinstalled the app.

    Yet it still does not work.

    Xbox controllers for windows 10

    The Bluetooth controllers don't come with an adaptor, is has Bluetooth built in. The device it connects to need to have Bluetooth to work, if your PC doesn't then you need to get a Bluetooth adapter for the PC.

    The wireless part of the controller works on a unique frequency only for the xbox controllers, so it won't work with WiFi, so for your PC to use the Xbox Wireless part, you would need the Xbox Wireless Adapter.

    Xbox one

    So the answer is yes. The term "Wireless display" is sort of a misnomer. The display isn't actually wireless, it's more like Remote Desktop, where you're controlling the PC on a different device without the display DIRECTLY (where the wireless part comes
    in) connected to the device.

    So this article loosely outlines how it works. You'll need the Wireless Display app installed on the PC and the
    Xbox One, and they'll need to be connected to the same local network. You'll connect the two in the app, and then control the PC via the app. A mouse and keyboard hooked up to the Xbox One are the best methods for controlling that, but you could put your
    PC in Big Picture mode if you want to control it more easily that way.

    It's more like reverse streaming via the Xbox App, but using the Wireless Display app, so it won't be a wireless display, per se, but it will need to be wired to your Xbox.

    Let us know if you have any problems or questions in trying to get that set up, and we'll be happy to help!

    Connecting a logitech extreme 3d pro to an xbox adaptive controller

    The poster has no problems at all connecting the Joystick to PC so your solutions won't make a difference. Their problem is getting it to work with the Xbox Assisted Controller
