I'm not sure from your initial question if you are trying to use X-Plane 10 for mobile or for desktop. They are two entirely separate products and nothing will transfer from one to the other. So if you have been using the mobile app and just recently installed the desktop sim, it will only have the default settings and you will have to set everything up the first time. Calibrate your joystick, customize buttons or keys, etc. Here is a link to the manuals that might help.
