All Xbox One games with mouse and keyboard support

While the last-gen Xbox One isn’t as powerful as the Xbox Series X, it’s still a worthwhile console and has a huge library of great games.

If you’re looking to stay competitive while playing online multiplayer games versus next-gen console and PC players or are just looking to avoid some wonky console interface that’s difficult to navigate, you may want to try using a keyboard and mouse with your Xbox One. A keyboard and mouse will give you better precision than your standard Xbox One controller so you can keep up in cross-platform games without shelling out money for a top gaming PC.

These are all the games that support a mouse and keyboard on Xbox One.

You can play with a mouse and USB keyboard if your game supports it. First, plug the mouse and keyboard into the USB cable ports on the Xbox One. Next, go to the Settings menu and select Kinect & Devices, at which point you’ll have options for swapping button mapping and configuring the pointer speed of your mouse.

It should also be noted that both a wireless mouse and a wireless keyboard are compatible with the Xbox One.

Your gaming keyboard should work immediately after plugging it into the USB port on your Xbox One, as well, with certain game pad functions automatically mapped to keys. The keyboard commands are pretty straightforward and easy to adjust to, like using Enter as the A button and the arrow keys substituting for the directional keys on a typical game controller.

What about using an adapter?

Adapters do exist to bridge support for all Xbox One games, like the IOGear Kaliber Gaming KeyMander 2. You can play all games on an Xbox console using these adapters, as long as they are compatible with your keyboard and mouse, but there’s a catch or two you may not like. The quality can deteriorate if you’re using adapters, leading to delays in gameplay. If you’re playing a first-person shooter game, using an adapter can interfere with your shooting accuracy.

Using an adapter for your keyboard and mouse may give you an unfair advantage over regular game control players, many console game manufacturers have realized. Consequently, some console games prohibit the use of adapters, while some restrict the use of mice and keyboards altogether to maintain a fair playing field for all users. Before you play a popular game that involves opponents or teamwork, test and see if you can use adapters or if the game does not support them.

The 4 best monitors for Xbox Series X in 2024
Xbox Series X Stylized Graphic

The Xbox Series X is a delightful console, but can ironically be a headache to get a suitable monitor for. Why? It can't necessarily take advantage of all of the stats the best gaming monitors are going to be able to give it. It's rated to run 4K at 120Hz max. This means the usual high definition, high refresh rate lists of monitors — what gamers typically go for — is thrown out the window. However, with lower requirements, there are actually also lower quantities of monitor for you to choose from without, essentially, paying for extra. No matter what your situation, however, here are the best monitors for the Xbox Series X that you can buy right now.
