Mine works on Windows 10. I use to play Cemu emulator and some PC games but for the PC games you need x360ce or another xbox controller emulator to proper button mapping. You dont need drivers just plug and play.

One more thing. There seems to be two versions of these controllers, one's that come with replaceable analog stick caps and ones without that feature. Not sure if that makes any difference but it's worth noting.

I plugged the controller into my corporate PC. It shows up as a "Core Plus Wired Controller". Now I'm wondering why it's not showing on my Steam PC. Gonna do a hardware refresh in the device manager and see what I get.

Same issue. Solution: Return it for a refund and buy a controller that is compatible. PowerA will not release a Windows 7/8/10 driver. The email I received from them stated the reasoning as: "We did not intend on it being used for anything other than the switch. We do have other compatible controllers."
So... fk them. Get a refund. Shame too cause the controller (BotW) is epic.

    The contacts are there, and the device already has charge control circuitry, but you have to buy and solder the battery yourself.
