    Pro Controller Not Working With PC Anymore


    I normally play my PC games with the Switch Pro controller, but in the middle of playing a steam game my controller stopped working all together. My PC detects the pro controller in "Control Panel Devices" but in the actual "Game Controllers" configuration it does not show up for input testing. Neither Bluetooth or a wired connection worked. When connecting through Bluetooth or wired. The controller says it's connected, but no inputs work.

    • I've been struggling with this for 2 days straight now and still have yet to find a solution.
      I have tied:
    • Connecting to another computer. Both with wired and wireless worked just fine. It's only this computer.
    • Tried every USB port available. Uninstalled and reinstalled every driver I could find. Of course with restarting PC each time
    • Tested other controllers such as the Joy-cons, 8Bitdo, PS4 controllers. All worked perfectly.
    • Steam big picture is also not detecting the controller.
    • Every other controller is detected just fine I have tried 3rd party software such as XInput and BetterJoyForCEMU.
    • None of those worked as my controller is just not getting detected in the Game Controllers.


    Windows is detecting the Pro Controller just fine. In the picture as shown, any controller I connected would normally show up there for input testing.

    Hello SubieTY,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Initially, we need to pair the device to show up in the list while connected through Bluetooth. Check with the below mentioned steps and see if it works.


    Hope it helps.
