How To Play Games on PC using Xbox One Controller
All the gaming enthusiasts out there, there is something very exciting for you. You can use the Xbox one controller to play the games on your personal computer. If you are tired of using the keyboard, mouse, and dreary joysticks, you will truly be delighted at this news. The Xbox one controller has already become a huge success among the Xbox users. Now it is your time to have fun with it. Unfortunately, this controller cannot be used wirelessly with your PC at this time. However, if you have a simple micro-USB cable, you can connect this device instantly to your computer and laptops.
Things You Need: Well, the few things you need are: Windows-based computer, micro USB cable, the controller (of course), and connection to the internet (only to download the drivers for the controller).
Here is how you can make the controller compatible with Windows.
Driver Installation: Connect your computer to the internet and download the driver from one of the following links (depending upon Windows type) -

Install the driver and follow the next step.
Connecting the Controller: You simply need to connect the controller using the micro-USB cable you have already procured. If the controller vibrates after making the wired connection, it means it is ready to use. If it does not vibrate, change the USB cable or try a different USB port.
Note: If you want to use the controller with Xbox One again, please re-sync it with the console. It can be done easily by connecting the controller to the console using the micro-USB cable. You can also press the sync buttons on the console and controller simultaneously.
