    The drivers for Xbox 360 Controllers are automatically installed on Windows 10. If your Xbox 360 wired controller is not detected by your PC, try plugging it into a different USB port, and then test it again.

    Xbox 360 Wired Controller

    Thank you for your response. We would like to verify if you have tried to plug the controller into a different USB port on your computer.

    The Xbox 360 Controller for Windows needs a powered USB port. If the controller is not working correctly, try changing it to a different USB port. Avoid using USB hubs or the front ports on a PC. Unpowered hubs or ports might not provide enough power
    to the controller. For best results, plug the controller into another USB port on the back of the computer.

    Typically, the ports on the back of a computer are powered ports. Ports on the front of the computer may not be powered ports. An external USB hub doesn’t provide powered ports if it doesn’t have its own separate power supply or AC adapter.

    Since the issue started after an update, you can uninstall Windows Updates from your computer by following the steps below:

    • Click Start and go to Settings.
    • Go to Update & security.
    • Under the Check for updates button, click Update History.
    • Select Uninstall updates.
    • Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

    This process will only allow you to remove updates that Windows has installed since installing the previous build.

    Make sure that your controller is calibrated by following the steps on this
    link
    .

    Keep us updated with the results after performing the suggested solutions above.
