Step 1: Connect your Xbox One to your laptop or desktop (If it’s already connected, skip to step 2.)

You need to attach your Xbox One to your Windows 10 computer and find the Xbox streaming app. There are three methods of connecting your Xbox one to your computer. 

  1. With an HDMI cable (requires an HDMI input port on your computer)
  2. With a USB capture card 
  3. With Wi-Fi or ethernet connection

We recommend the third method. to attach your console using Wi-Fi, you would like to download and install the Xbox app on your computer. Once it’s downloaded, log in to your Xbox account and switch on your Xbox One. Click on “Connection” on the left vertical bar of icons, and both devices are going to be connected. 

Note: confirm your Xbox One and computer are connected to an equivalent network.

2. Use Xbox One controller on Xbox 360?

Are there any thanks to using the Xbox One controller on the 360?
