In a recent update, Xbox has introduced a feature allowing users to map keyboard keys to their controller buttons.

This feature is available for the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 and the Xbox Adaptive Controller, aiming to enhance the gaming experience for players who prefer keyboard-focused games or those with complex controls.

Previously tested with Xbox Insiders in August, this functionality is now accessible through the Xbox Accessories app on both PC and console. With this feature, gamers can assign specific keyboard keys to their controller buttons. For instance, they can map the left bumper to a preferred keyboard key, streamlining controls for games with limited controller support.

While multiple modifier keys like Ctrl, Shift, Alt, and Win can be assigned to a single controller button, users can only include one non-modifier key, such as "C." However, this capability enables players to map entire key sequences, like "Ctrl + Shift + C," to a single button, providing greater flexibility and customization options.

In addition to the keyboard mapping feature, Microsoft is also introducing the ability to import Xbox game captures into Clipchamp, the company's video editing software for Windows. Furthermore, Microsoft is simplifying the process of opting out of diagnostic data sharing by implementing an account-based preference system. Once a user opts out on one device, this preference will automatically apply to all devices where they are signed in.
