Microsoft’s consoles have perpetually shipped to gaming consumers with the highest quality gaming controllers, and the Xbox One is no different. The Xbox One controller is not a complete overhaul of the previous Xbox 360 controller but more of a refinement of it's predecessor best bits, the Xbox One’s controller is awesome to use with any video games.
If you want to use your Xbox One controller to play some PC games, or maybe you want to try SteamOS? And, you need something other than a mouse and keyboard. I have got some good news: The Xbox One controller supports Windows PC's and establishing it only takes a couple of minutes. Microsoft’s official drivers will allow any Xbox One controller to work with PC games that have controller support.
Option 1: Use a USB cable.
Option 2: Use the Xbox Wireless Adapter.
Option 3: Use Bluetooth.
As simple as plug and play.
If the controller doesn't respond to the above method, try a different micro-USB cable.
Microsoft has a new standard called Xbox Wireless that’s built into a few computers, but there’s a good chance it’s not built into yours.
You can only use Bluetooth to connect a controller if you are running Windows 10 on your PC. You must also have the newer model of the Xbox One controller.
After you have connected your controller to a PC, you will need to 're-pair' it with your Xbox One the next time you use it. You can do this by connecting the controller to your Xbox using a USB cable and press the Xbox button to pair or by pressing the Connect button on the system followed by holding the Bind button on your controller.
If you run into any issues, you can check out Microsoft's official guide on connecting their Xbox One controller to a PC here.
