Drivers for Xbox 360 controllers for window 10

 Recently a friend gave me a wired Xbox 360 controller to use on my PC, I have a desktop HP Compaq elite 8300 sff running Windows 10 home pro,,, The problem is the controller isn't  working like it should,,, I don't know how or where to check for the control drivers  or  where to go to set  up the control functions for it,,, As you guessed I don't know very much about computers  and I'm not great at navigating  or accessing the places i want to go as far as programs and such , I tried the virtual asst but didn't get very far with it... I guess I must be stupid,, that's ok i own it if i am,, any help would be greatly appreciated... Sincerely Coy Osbon

XBOX 360 type (what brand), or genuine MS XBOX 360 ? I would have thought the wired MS controller would be plug and play,

but maybe it needs the same trick as 3rd party XBOX controllers, which are....

(may not be necessary. You can try the next step below first if you want) ... Download and install  this...

Reboot.

Open Device Manager (R/click on the Start button) and you should find XBOX 360 Peripherals > XBOX 360 Controller for Windows

at the bottom of the list.

R/click on XBOX 360 Controller for Windows and select Update driver
Select the  Browser My Computer option.

Then click on the Let me pick... option.

Select a driver from the list that pops up (or more if you have more than one with the same date) and click install.

Reboot...

(Optional... Cross fingers and do a jig)
