How can I connect my controller to my PC or Laptop?
This controller is designed and produced exclusively for Nintendo Switch, and is not compatible with PC.
I was able to troubleshoot my controller, after the only thing it did was glow when charging. I was so worried that my controller wouldn't work. I am so glad that I was to find the article, because I was starting to freak out. It helps alot, my controller works now.
