Connect your controller and wait for a few moments to allow Windows to complete the installation process. You can skip to step 6.

Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation process. You may need to restart your computer after the installation is finished. After the restart, connect your Xbox 360 controller to your PC, and it should be recognized and ready to use.
