[Switch] How can I unpair a controller that I've previously paired to my console?

Follow the steps below to unpair controllers from your Nintendo Switch console.

* It's not possible to unpair specific controllers. Instead, you must delete the pairing information for all controllers currently paired with your console. If you later want to use one of those controllers, you would need to repeat the pairing process again.

Controller unpairing procedure

1. Select "System Settings" from the HOME Menu.

2. Select "Controllers and Sensors" → "Disconnect Controllers".

* Follow the on-screen instructions and the pairing information for all controllers that your console knows about will be deleted.
