When you connect an Xbox Wireless Controller to your Windows 10 PC, Windows will automatically download and install the driver for the controller. But sometimes Windows may fail to install the driver. In this case, you’ll need to download and install the driver on your own. There’re 2 ways you can use to update the driver.

Way 1: Update the Driver via Device Manager
Way 2: Update the Driver Using Driver Easy


Way 1: Update the Driver via Device Manager

If Windows doesn’t install the driver automatically, you can update the driver manually through Device Manager. Follow these steps:

1. Open Device Manager.

2. Locate and expand Microsoft Xbox One Controller.

3. Right-click on the expanded Microsoft Xbox One Controller and select Update driver (On lower Windows 10 versions, select Update Driver Software). 

4. Select Search automatically for updated driver software. Then Windows will install the new driver for the device.

Instead of updating the driver manually,  you can use Driver Easy to update the driver automatically.
