Using Xbox Controller on Laptop

Hello, Complete nooby to the flight sim world. I am running this on a laptop without num pad and stuff. I discovered I can use the xbox controller which is much better than the keyboard + Mouse. (waiting to see if I like it enough to invest in a HOTAS). Anyways, when doing the tutorial the objectives will only be successful when completed using the keyboard buttons (but I can control with the controller as well) and since I’m running on a laptop I haven’t found an easy way to not have all the settings set to buttons I do not have on my laptop keyboard.

Thought I’d check if anyone has a guide or shortcuts to using the xbox one controller to learn to fly on the PC (actually be able to pass the objectives)

Thank you all,
cheers!
