Windows 10: XBOX ONE controller loses connection to XBOX?

    XBOX ONE controller loses connection to XBOX?


    Is it normal for your XBOX ONE controller to lose its link to the XBOX if you plug it into a PC with a USB cable? I was using the XBOX App on my PC and had to connect my XBOX controller to my PC with a USB cable. When I was done it would not work with the XBOX. I had to relink it? Am I going to have to do that every time I swap it back and forth?

    It's the same with my DualShock4 (a PS4 controller). I lose connection with the PS4 whenever I use it on PC but good thing I have 2 controllers. I guess these controllers don't support multiple devices.

    I just tried the Forza 6 Apex Beta (MS Link) and the DS4 is fully compatible with it.

    If I use my desktop PC in the next room my XBOX controller will work without having to plug it into my PC. I don't think it would work if I went much farther away though. I played some RISK from my XBOX to my PC via the XBOX App last night. Eventually I will buy a second controller.

    it was the same with the Xbox 360 controllers on PC, and it's a smart decision to not support multiple devices, wouldn't want my Xbox turning on whenever I play games on my PC

    Makes sense. Sometimes I forget it can be used as the remote control for the XBOX. I also bought the media remote control for mine and use that to turn it on and off just by habit.
