Xpadder is the perfect example of a useful app that doesn’t get the praise it deserves. With no fancy graphics, and a user interface isn’t that beautiful, the utility is sturdy and serves an essential purpose. Essentially, the software allows you to map controller buttons to a variety of basic keyboard and mouse gestures. Furthermore, letting you use a large number of controllers that would otherwise be useless on Windows PCs. Although Xpadder has many uses, the most common is configuring controllers to work with games that have no native support. When Windows recognizes the controller, the app you map the controller’s buttons. Also, you can set the button actions to customize the experience further. With almost an infinite number of possible controllers and games configurations, finding the right one takes some time.
