    XBox Elite Series 2 Controller Paired to Windows 10 PC but Not Recognized by Games


    I just bought and unboxed an XBox Elite Series 2 Controller to use on my Windows 10 PC. It's fully charged. I was able to successfully pair it via Bluetooth but when I turn on the controller and open a game, the X button just keeps blinking and I can't use the controller in a game.

    It shows up as a paired device in my Bluetooth settings.

    I haven installed XBox Accessories and updated the firmware via the USB cable.

    My games recognize it when I use the USB cable.

    I have run the Bluetooth Troubleshooter.

    My version of Windows 10 is 20H2.

    Help?

    :)

    Xbox Elite Controller 2 will not connect VIA usb or Bluetooth to my pc

    The original XBox Elite controller requires the Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows 10 so without that adapter it will not be recognized properly by Windows. The newer, Elite Series 2 can connect to a Windows 10 PC without the need of an adapter.

    I'm Samy an independent advisor.

    How are you?
    Check that your bluetooth driver is up to date and turn off the controller by holding the Xbox button until it goes out, remove the controller from paired devices and re-pair.

    the elite controller series 2 has Bluetooth compatibility and is therefore compatible with windows 10 too. the first release of the elite controller was before xbox was integrated into windows 10, therefore there was no need at the time for Bluetooth.

    Cannot configure xbox elite series 2 in Accessories app

    • To configure the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, get the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (or later) and make sure your PC has the latest fixes.

      See how to get updates
      .
    • The Xbox Accessories app won’t detect your controller if you’re using Bluetooth to connect to your PC. Connect your controller using Xbox Wireless, or plug the included USB-C cable into the back of the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 and plug the
      other end into your PC. For more info, see

    Are Xbox Wireless Controller user remap profiles supported when connecting to Windows 10 PC via bluetooth? Works fine when USB

    Hi

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. I'd be happy to answer that.

    Customizing user profiles on a Windows 10 PC is not supported via Bluetooth. Any Bluetooth capable Xbox One controllers will need to be plugged in via USB-C or through the Xbox Wireless Adapter if you want to customize and use custom profiles. The Xbox Accessories
    app will not detect your controller over Bluetooth connection.

    Use the Xbox Accessories app to customize your Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2  

    Things to keep in mind:

    • The Xbox Accessories app is only available on Xbox One and Windows 10.
    • To configure the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, get the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (or later) and make sure your PC has the latest fixes.
