Millions of people enjoy playing video games on their PCs. Many of these gamers would like to have a PlayStation controller use to play their games instead of the keyboard and mouse. In this article, we will show you how to connect a PlayStation 5 DualSense controller or a PlayStation 4 DualShock controller to your PC.

How do you connect a PlayStation 5 DualSense controller to your PC?

Connecting a PlayStation 5 DualSense controller to your PC is easy. Playing with a DualSense controller can be wired or via bluetooth.

To connect a PlayStation 5 controller to your PC, you must use the enable bluetooth settings on your PC. Don't have a bluetooth adapter in your PC? Then you need a USB-C cable needed.

Wired: Just connect the USB-C cable to the port on the controller and the other end to a USB port on your PC.

Wireless:

  1. Put your DualSense into Bluetooth mode by holding down the PlayStation button and the Create button for three seconds until the light bar begins to flash.
  2. Open bluetooth settings on your PC and select "Add Device."
  3. The controller is listed as "PlayStation 5 DS." Select it and follow the on-screen instructions to connect it to your PC.
  4. If a pairing code is requested enter 0000.

These are the simple steps to connect your PlayStation 5 controller to your PC. Keep in mind that at the time of writing, not all games use the new technologies such as adaptive triggers.

How do you connect a PlayStation 4 DualShock controller to your PC?

Connecting a PlayStation 4 DualShock controller is also easy to connect to a PC or laptop.

To connect a PlayStation 4 DualShock controller to your PC, you need a microUSB cable and you have to make it DS4Windows program install on your PC.

  2. Open DS4Windows and click on "Install DS4 Controller." The program will install the necessary drivers for your PC.
  3. Once those are installed, open DS4Windows and select "Controller."
  4. The controller is listed as "Wireless Controller (PlayStation 4)."
  5. Select it and follow the on-screen instructions to connect it to your PC.

Obsessed with games since childhood. From flames on the SNES and gameboy to GoldenEye on the N64. I am a possessor of every next-gen console & a gaming PC. My preference is (MMO)RPGs after an unhealthy obsession with WoW which comes back every expansion :-).
