Are you wondering where to find LB or RT on your Xbox One controller? Don't worry - we have pics of the layout here for you, all labeled.

Let's start with the buttons that are visible on the top view. Next, below that, we'll show the front view that contains the buttons that were not visible on the top view.

Handy tips

The left and right stick can each be used in two different ways:

  • The sticks can be moved in any direction (up, down, left, right and everything in between). This is the most common usage of the sticks LS and RS.
  • The sticks can also be pushed down from above, as if you were pushing a thumbtack down into a desk. Pushing down on a stick is less commonly used, and it's represented by a down arrow next to the stick name, like this: ↓LS or ↓RS. So if you see that, it means push down on the stick. The most common universal usage of it is when typing: pushing left stick down will capitalize the first letter of a word.

The letters A, X, Y, and B are self-explanatory so I didn't bother labeling them. A generally means "Accept" or "Yes". B generally means "Disagree" "No" or "Back". The other letters do different things depending what game you're playing.

In game play, the menu button is usually referred to by a 3-line icon that looks just like the button (not as "menu button"), so you don't need to worry about it's name, you'll always see it represented by an image. If a friend is telling you to press it, he or she will most likely say "the 3 line button". Not surprisingly, on most games, pressing the menu button takes you to the menu. So if you need to stop playing but you're wondering how to save the game, just press the button with the 3 lines.
