Windows Really Needs A Bluetooth Interface Overhaul


If you have two seperate Windows devices, and you use an Xbox Controller on both, it seems like the Xbox controller remembers the last device it was connected to and will not automatically connect to the secondary device even if the previous device it was connected to is not found. Aggrevating, but no problem, I’ll just go to the bluetooth control panel and press Connect on my Xbox Controller.

It’s not there. You literally have to uninstall the Xbox controller, then press the bluetooth button on your Xbox controller, connect, and reinstall the device.

But at least we have Notepad and Calculator updates (cheap shot for sure, but it felt good).

On a side note, Also it should be possible to do the things you can do in the Bluetooth control panel straight from your bluetooth icon in your bottom bar without having to bring up a whole other screen.
