3. When you are done you might need to Restart your PC then open the software again it should show you at the bottom right corner that’s your controller is connected. You’re good to go

Steam method

Xbox controllers are known to be plug and play controllers in the PC game in the world
You just need to plug them in, windows you automatically identified them as compatible and install necessary drivers
You might need to select Xbox controller in in-game settings of some games if it doesn’t select it automatically

All wired Xbox controllers walk without any settings.

All wireless Xbox controllers except the Xbox 360 controllers work with PC simply by connecting it with Bluetooth.

To connect the wireless version of the Xbox 360 controller you need to get a receiver for the Xbox 360 wireless controller which is sold on online stores or local shops nearby.

The first Rarely used method is using steam using the steps described above.

Most commonly used method is using an emulator like x360ce, xpadder, xinput mapper etc

X360ce is the most common for the common genetic controllers
1. Download x360ce for both 32 and 64bit.
2. Put the version into the installation directory of the game (right on shortcut and open file location- that’s the game directory)
3. If you don’t know the version of the game (32/64bit). Put anyone it will tell you if it’s an incorrect one eg fifa 22 will bring up an error if you put the 32bit x360ce in its directory because it’s a 64bit game.
4. Ensure you’re connected to the internet for fast mapping, install all the required softwares in x360ce like the popular registry xinput1_3.dll
5. Save and you’re good to go
N/B: there’s a newer version of x360ce that’s an all in one it works for both architectures but is a little complicated to use and hence cannot be made to work with some stubborn games yet.

N/B: not all games work with this. But most games do.
Eg for fifa 22 it requires you to edit the newly created “xinput1_3.dll” to “xinput1_4.dll” for the pad to be recognized.
Other stubborn games might have their solutions also.
