How to Remap Xbox One Controller Buttons [NXOE]

Thanks to the Elite controller, you can now remap buttons on any Xbox One controller accessory within the new Xbox One Dashboard’s Settings app. It’s suprisingly easy to do, and works with any controller at all – Elite or not. Here’s how to get it done…


1 Head To Settings

To get started you’ll want to navigate into Settings – either via the top tabs or by double tapping the Xbox button and using the new Guide. Once there, head towards the Kinect & Devices option to get started.


2 Choose Your Device

Once you’ve selected your device you’ll be able to do simple changes, such as making your controller permanently southpaw, or head into button mapping to make more intricate changes.


3 Get Technical

Here you can remap the entire gamepad. While this is designed for the Elite controller, this can work wonders for a regular pad if you’re more accustomed to different button placements.
