Enable network game transfer
Network transfer lets one Xbox console copy games and apps from another console, so long as they’re on the same home network. Copying this way can be faster than downloading another copy of the same game or app. If you have a metered internet connection, this can also save you money.
Any Xbox One (original Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X) can be either the source or the destination console.
- On the Xbox you want to copy from, go to Settings > Network > Network transfer and check the box to allow network transfer. This makes that Xbox visible to other consoles on the same network.
- Once you’ve allowed transferring from the “host” Xbox, turn on the console onto which you’ll be copying games and apps, and go to the same settings page. Your host Xbox should be listed.
- Select the Xbox you want to copy from, choose the items to copy, then select Copy selected.

I asked a few Best Buy employees for this adapter and they were confused it was even necessary to begin with (and of course they didn't have the product in stock anyways). There are workarounds to get Windows to recognize a wireless Xbox One controller (through some extra steps on a Windows 10 anniversary update...for a game controller...) but the fact that this thing exists in the first place is embarrassing. Thanks Microsoft.
When it happened on the last one I followed all the steps on the Microsoft site, then contacted customer service (though it was actually xbox customer service since the Microsoft person said to contact them). The xbox person I talked to first was actually from Texas and played xbox too, so props for that. Unfortunately he just made me go through the same trouble shooting steps that are listed on the Microsoft site, which I did over the phone once again to humor him in the hopes he would have some other advice once those were done, but he did not.
It was to late to RMA so I just sucked it up and bought a second one, which I lost going through the TSA security checkpoint a week later. OOPS!!
The last one was my mistake, and I'm not giving them a one star for that, but because the third one I bought has started having the same connection problems. It works for awhile but then after a couple months it will no longer recognize my controller even when it's a few inches away from the adapter. Pairing/Restting/Uninstalling-Reinstalling Drivers for the adapter & controller haven't worked at all.
This time I tried multiple controllers, as well as two different laptops (plus the PC I wanted to use it on) to make absolutely sure the issue wasn't something wrong with my hardware. I've asked around on forums and Reddit but the responses, while amusing, didn't really help me out.
I love Microsoft, and am a big fan of Xbox, but considering these cost so much for what's basically just a wireless usb stick I really don't think I should be having these problems. When it happened with the first one I figured it was just a fluke, not every electronic device of the same kind is the same. It's after happening twice and spending so much time trying to fix it that I decided to give it a one star review and recommend getting the bluetooth controller. Yes it can be over twice the cost (though much less if you get it used or on sale) but I've had absolutely no problems with it, and it's worth the extra cost (if you can afford it) just to not have an extra dongle and wireless signal.
