With an Xbox 360 controller plug the USB connector into your PC. It is possible to splice an old Xbox controller cable into a USB cable, too.

Windows should recognize it and load the drivers. If not, search online for Xbox controller drivers. For example, I was able to download drivers for my MadCatz Xbox 360 controller at madcatz.com.

After installing the drivers, windows will treat the controller like a game pad. If you want to use it to control the mouse and use the buttons for shortcuts, try an input remapper like XBCD (free).
