Summary List Placement

Hardcore PC gamers often swear by the precision of a mouse and keyboard — it’s so popular that even console players sometimes prefer keyboards to joysticks.

However, there’s no denying that leaning back with a controller in your hand is much more relaxing than lording over a mouse and keyboard.

Fortunately, just like you can connect your mouse and keyboard to a PS4, you can likewise connect your PS4 controller to a PC.

How to connect your PS4 controller to a PC using a USB cable

If you want to connect the controller with a micro-USB cable (the same cable you use to charge the controller), you have two options.

3. Under the “Controller” tab, click “Controller Settings.”
