You can use the Xbox One Wireless Controller to play Xbox games on your PC when connected via micro-USB cable.

To use an Xbox One Wireless Controller with your PC, you'll need to make sure you have the current PC drivers.

Windows 10:

For Windows 10, the most current drivers are pre-installed with the operating system.

Windows 8.1 and Windows 7:

When you connect an Xbox One Wireless Controller to your Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 PC with a micro-USB cable, Windows will automatically download and install the drivers for the controller. If Windows is not set to automatically download device software, check for updates manually in the Device Manager:
  • Point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, and then select Search.
  • Enter Device Manager in the search box, and then select Device Manager. Windows may ask you for an administrator password or to confirm your choice.
  • Locate and expand Microsoft Xbox One Controller.
  • Right-click the expanded Microsoft Xbox One Controller and select Update Driver Software.
  • Select Search Automatically for Updated Software.
  • 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.
