There is no driver to download for the 360 controller on Windows 10, because the driver is already installed as part of the OS.

There are two likely reasons why your controller isn't being detected.  It's either because your controller isn't a true wired controller or you've plugged it into a USB 1 port.  

If your controller is wireless please note that you can not turn it into a wired controller with a Play & Charge.  It will always be wireless and therefore will not be detected. To use a wireless controller on Windows you will need a gaming wireless receiver.  Otherwise, you will need a 360 wired controller.
