  1. How do I stop Xbox one controllers from controlling default windows apps?


    First off I've already disabled the controller support in steam so I know its not that. So to start, because of the awful quality of the micro USB on the back of xbox controllers it often disconnects when I'm playing. The problem comes in when I go back to my desktop after I'm done playing and even though the controller isn't even plugged in it will still control default windows apps such as the start menu causing me to literally not be able to use windows, effectively bricking any windows functions due to this pea brained decision on their part until I completely reboot my computer. Is there any way to fix this because I'm not spending $800 a year on batteries or rechargeable ones that don't hold a charge after 2 weeks.

    :)

  3. Xbox One controller being recognized as a 360 Controller

    Hi Stephan,

    There are several reasons why your Xbox One controller is detected as an Xbox 360 controller by your PC. It is possible that the controller is not updated or if you previously used an Xbox 360 controller on the PC, it is still detecting its drivers instead
    of the Xbox One controller drivers. To properly isolate your concern, please clarify the following information:

    • Have you used an Xbox 360 controller on the same computer before?
    • Does the error message occur on all of the games that you play?
    • Have you tried to update the controller?
    • Are you using an Xbox One Elite controller?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you update the controller by following the steps on this

    • Have you tried connecting a different controller using the same USB cable?
