    Connecting Nintendo switch pro controller via Bluetooth


    I can pair my Nintendo switch pro controller and it will be automatically setup by windows, however if I turn the controller off and on again, it doesn't reconnect. To reconnect, I have to remove the device and pair it again. How can I make the controller automatically connect without having to re-pair?

    :)

    Nintendo Switch Pro Controller doesn't connect via Bluetooth

    Greetings,

    As per title, my controller (Nintendo Switch Pro Controller) is not connecting to my PC via bluetooth. All online walkthroughs i came through cover cases where either the controller doesn't connect via bluetooth nor cable, or it connects fine with both. In
    my case, cable works (partially?), while bluetooth doesn't recognize it.

    I have already tried updating my bluetooth drivers, or device drivers.

    I heard the Pro Controller has native support on W10, but it may have been wrong information.

    Nintendo Switch Pro Controller not being detected by Windows 10

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We appreciate your effort on this. We understand that when you connect the Nintendo Switch Pro controller to the computer, it is not being detected, we will look into this for you.



    However, it would be great if you can help us with the details requested below:



    • Does the Nintendo Switch Pro controller gets detected in any other computer?
    • Were you able to use the Nintendo Switch Pro controller earlier on your current computer?
    • Is any other USB Device detected on your computer?
    • Do you see any Unknown device or a yellow yield sign on any device in Device Manager?
    • May I know the troubleshooting steps that you have tried so far?


    To check for unknown devices, you can press Windows key + X, and select
    Device Manager.



    If you see any Unknown device or a device with yellow yield, right click on the device and select
    Update Driver.



    However, we would also suggest you to refer the steps mentioned in the article

    Error: “USB Device not recognized” when you try to access a USB external hard drive.
    except Method 1 and 2 and check if that helps in resolving the issue.



    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare
