For those who do not like the controller layout of a specific game or just can’t use them because of accessibility reasons, Microsoft is now giving you the option to remap your Xbox controller on Windows 10. This feature has been available on Xbox One for some time but never made its way to Windows 10 users until now (via Windows Central).

Players on Windows 10 can now access this option through the Xbox Accessories application. It is here that players will be able to change around the button layout, swap thumbsticks, swap triggers, and invert the axes. This is definitely a huge improvement for those who have had a difficult time playing games on Windows 10 before due to various controller schemes.

If you were previously using third-party software to enable this feature, you should jump to the native support and give it a try. While it may have taken Microsoft longer to bring this feature to Windows 10, it’s great to see them continually improve everyone’s gaming experience.

Let us know if you will use this feature and if you think it could use some more customization options.
