    How to Setup and Pair Mixed Reality Motion Controllers in Windows 10


    Mixed reality blends real-world and virtual content into hybrid environments where physical and digital objects coexist and interact.

    Windows Mixed Reality is designed to work best with mixed reality motion controllers. Motion controllers are hardware accessories that offer precise and responsive tracking of movement in your field of view using the sensors in the immersive headset, meaning there is no need to install hardware on the walls in your space. These motion controllers will offer the same ease of setup and portability as Windows Mixed Reality immersive headsets. For Windows Mixed Reality immersive headsets, motion controllers are the primary way that users will take action in their world.

    Motion controllers use Bluetooth 4.0 to connect to your PC. If your PC doesnt have Bluetooth 4.0 , you can buy a USB 4.0 Bluetooth micro adapter and plug that into the PC.

    This tutorial will show you how to setup and pair your motion controllers for Windows Mixed Reality on your Windows 10 PC.

    *note If another set of motion controllers is paired with your PC, you'll need to unpair those controllers before pairing new ones.

    If you paired a set of motion controllers with your current PC and then paired them with a second PC, you'll need to unpair and re-pair them with the current PC before using them again.



    EXAMPLE: How to use motion controllers in Windows Mixed Reality





    Here's How:

    1. Open Settings, and click/tap the Devices icon.

    2. Click/tap on Bluetooth & other devices on the left side, and turn on Bluetooth. (see screenshot below)

    10. You will now see the motion controller appear in the Bluetooth settings under the Mouse, keyboard, & pen category as Connected. (see screenshot below)

    *note If the controllers are turned off after pairing, their status will show up as Paired. If controllers stay permanently under “Other devices” category pairing may have been only partially completed and need to be performed again to get controller functional.
