  1. I can't connect xbox controller to pc


    I've been trying to connect a controller to the pc for ages. The **** won't ever work. If I use a wierd xbox one controller it dosn't even recgonize the device. If I use a wireless xbox one the pc connect but the controller doesn't. If i connect a wireless xbox 360 controller same thing. If I connect a wierd xbox 360 controller it recognized it but can't use it as input. I can connect other Bluetooth devices to my pc, and all the controllers work on a Xbox. Any tips?

    :)

    1. Press and hold the Windows + X key on the keyboard.
    2. Select Device manager.
    3. Click View tab.
    4. Select Show hidden devices.
    5. Expand Universal Serial Bus and remove all the greyed out devices. To remove the greyed out devices, right click on the device and select
      uninstall.
    6. Restart your computer.
