Xbox One standard wireless controller now supports button remapping

Xbox One owners can finally have their controls the way they want them across multiple games thanks to this update.


Microsoft has added button remapping to the standard Xbox One controllers today.

Users who wish to remap their standard Xbox One controllers can do so in a variety of ways. The easiest way is to launch the Xbox Accessories app, although button remapping is also available within the Xbox One’s Settings app.

Button remapping automatically swaps button pairs, which ensures no button is left without any function. For example: If you move your RT to your LT, then by default, your LT will become your new RT. If you prefer to remap multiple buttons, that’s available as well.

Any buttons you remap on a single Xbox One console is not transferrable, so if you go over someone’s house, don’t expect all of your buttons to be remapped how they were at your home console. Button remapping is also available for both first-party wireless and third-party wired controllers, although there’s currently no PC support. Don’t worry, though, as PC support will be confirmed at a later time.

      I've heard that you cant rebind keys in FO4. Making the right stick the action button was the first thing I would do. It allows you to look around and just click the stick if you see something you want instead of taking your finger off the right stick to press a face button pick stuff up.

      If you do this, do button prompts in game change to match?

        Nope. Button glyphs are implemented in the game, not standardized by the OS, so there would be no way of auto-swapping them arbitrarily. I'm assuming the game would have no idea that this is happening at all.
