    Literally just copy/pasting from the other threads with this exact same unsolved issue that MS loves to aggressively lock.


    The controller works via plug and play, and it also works right after being paired the first time.

    A temporary fix is to forget the controller on Bluetooth and pair it again and that will work but is a tedious process if I have to do it every time I want to use it wireless.


    At the moment when I hold the Xbox button on the controller to turn it on, it will just keep flashing and eventually just turn off.
    It will connect fine if I plug in the plug and play but if I disconnect it, it will begin to flash again and not connect via wireless.

    Think that's all I can say about it.
    Would be great if I could just turn it on and it would sync up on its own.

    :)

    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.

  3. Cant connect my XBOX ONE controller to my W10 pc via bluetooth

    Hi,

    If you encounter issues connecting an Xbox One Wireless Controller on your Windows 10 PC via Bluetooth, it may be because of an incorrect device configuration. Another factor that we have to take into consideration is an outdated Bluetooth driver. We suggest
    running the Bluetooth troubleshooter on your Windows 10 PC. Here are the steps:

    • Select the Start button, then select Settings >
      Update & security > Troubleshoot.
    • Under Find and fix other problems, select Bluetooth >
      Run the troubleshooter.
    • Restart your device so that the changes will take effect.
    • Disconnect then reconnect the controller and check if the same issue occurs.

    We also recommend verifying if the Bluetooth device shows on the Device Manager. To do so, kindly perform the following steps:

    • In the search box on the taskbar, type Device Manager, and select it from the list of results.
    • In Device Manager, select View > Show hidden devices.
    • In Device Manager, select View > Devices by connection.
    • Find your Bluetooth hardware.
