Notes

  • If the controller doesn't respond, try a different micro-USB cable.
  • To use your Xbox One controller with your console after using it with a PC, you must re-sync the controller to the console. You can do this by using the wireless sync button or a USB cable. For details, see Connect a wireless Xbox One controller to your console.
  • For Windows 10 users, the Xbox One Wired Headset and the Xbox One Stereo Headset are compatible with a PC when connected through the Xbox One controller, as long as the firmware has been updated to the latest version. To ensure you have the latest firmware for your controller and headset, see Update your Xbox One Controller.
