Connecting the Xbox Series S / X Driver to Windows

Microsoft has made a new home launch with the Xbox Series S / X controller. Some may say it’s too similar to the Xbox One controller, but we say that if it’s not broken, don’t fix it. And just like the previous generation driver, the new one can be used on your Windows 10 computer. If you’re playing computer games that benefit from the controller using the keyboard and mouse, you may want to use the Xbox Series S / Controller. X because it is easily one of the best PC drivers.

Connect with a USB-C cable

Using the micro USB cable is the easiest way to use the Xbox Series S / X controller with your computer. First, connect the USB-C cable to the charging port on the top of the Xbox Series S / X controller. Then plug the other end (USB Type-A) into a USB port on your computer.

Windows should automatically install the correct driver to use the driver. If not, it may be because the controller is in standby mode. Press the Xbox button to wake up the controller. This should allow your Windows computer to recognize the driver and download the correct driver. When the controller is ready for use, the Xbox button lights up white.

Connecting the controller with a USB-C cable is quick and painless. Nevertheless, you have to live by logging on to your computer during game sessions.

Pair devices via Bluetooth for wireless games

At the time, Microsoft used its own wireless technology, known as Xbox Wireless, to connect drivers to the console. (It still exists – more on that later.) Fortunately, they saw a mistake in their habits. The new Xbox Series S / X controllers have standard Bluetooth functionality alongside the Xbox Wireless Protocol. This makes using the Xbox Series S / X controller wirelessly with your computer very easy.

Observe: If your computer does not have Bluetooth, this method will not work.

The first thing is to prepare the computer. Press the Start button on your Windows computer and click the gear icon to open the “Settings” menu. On the Windows Settings menu, click “Devices.” Make sure “Bluetooth and other devices” is selected in the left column. Next, make sure your computer’s Bluetooth is turned on by turning the switch to the On position.

Next, go to the Xbox Series S / X controller. Press the Xbox / Guide button to turn on the controller, and then press a pair of buttons. (See the illustration below for what the button looks like.) The Xbox / Guide button flashes quickly. This indicates that the controller is now in pairing mode.

Return to your computer and click the Add Bluetooth or other device button. The “Add Device” window appears. Select “Bluetooth”. Your Windows computer is now searching for Bluetooth devices in the area. Your controller appears as an Xbox wireless controller. Once the controller is successfully paired, you can use it to play wirelessly on your computer.

Use an Xbox Wireless Adapter

If your computer doesn’t have a Bluetooth connection, you can connect the driver to your computer wirelessly using the Xbox Wireless Adapter. Connect the Xbox Wireless Adapter to an available USB port on your computer. Next, press and hold the Xbox button to turn on the Xbox Series S / X controller, and then press the Sync button to set the controller to pairing mode.

Finally, press the sync button on the Xbox Wireless Adapter page. When the Guide (Xbox) button stops blinking and becomes steady, the controller is paired. The wireless adapter is known to work better than regular Bluetooth and can connect up to eight controllers to a computer at a time.

Using the Xbox Series S / X Controller with Steam

In general, even if you decide to connect the Xbox Series S / X controller to your computer, it should work. If you use Steam, you can play games through the Steam client with the Xbox Series S / X controller, as long as the controller is connected to your computer via USB-C or Bluetooth. In addition, you can customize the buttons to suit your style of play.

You can do this by opening Steam on your computer. Then open Steam settings. Go to “Driver -> General Driver Settings”. Steam should recognize your Xbox Series S / X controller and allow you to re-edit the buttons you want. Finally, check “Xbox Installation Support” and you’re ready to go.

The S-X controller in the Xbox series is a great upgrade to one of the best available. It is designed to be very easy to install on a computer, so if you want to discard your mouse and keyboard, look beyond the Xbox series S / X controller.

In addition to Windows, you can also use the Xbox controller on Android. Here’s what you can do.
