Do you want to use your DualSense PS5 regulator on Steam? Here’s a step-by-step guide to getting your PlayStation 5 controller working
on your PC or Steam!
Playing around on Steam with a PS5 regulator entails having a lot of fun in the most progressive and vivid way possible. It’s something that every serious player should experience.
In any event, getting your PS5 controller to function with all of the titles on Steam isn’t always easy. According to some users, just one out of every odd Steam game automatically detects the PS5 regulator, which can be a problem. Another problem with the PS5 is that it switches on by itself. This is becoming increasingly popular among us.
Fortunately, this tutorial is dedicated to aiding you in determining how to use a PS5 regulator on Steam, even with games
that require you to physically configure it, so let’s get started.
How to Connect Your PS5 Controller To Your Computer
Dual-sense PS5 regulators
Before you start configuring your PS5 dualsense regulator to work with a certain Steam game, you’ll need to connect it to your PC and make sure it’s working properly.
PS5 regulators may be connected to your PC in one of two ways:
via a link or via a remote Bluetooth connection.
Using A USB Cable To Connect
A USB-A to USB-C link, which comes with the real regulator, is required for this type of connection. If you don’t have the connection for some reason, you’ll need to get one from a nearby store; but, rest assured that as long as it’s USB-A to USB-C, it’ll function flawlessly.
The USB-A end should be plugged into your computer, while the USB-C end should be linked to the regulator.
After you’ve connected the regulator, it should light up, along with the “Player1” opening, indicating that you’ve successfully linked the device.
Using Bluetooth to connect
To connect your PS5 regulator to your PC remotely, you’ll need to perform the following:
Open the Windows search box and enter in “Bluetooth and other devices,” then click on the first option that appears, as seen in the image below.
Settings for Bluetooth and many devices
Then, as seen in the image below, click “Add Bluetooth or other gadget” once more.
Bluetooth or another device can be added. Choose “Bluetooth” once again. Press the PS and offer buttons on your regulator at the same time and hold them both pressed for a few seconds. Your regulator will turn a bright blue colour very fast.
The regulator should appear in the “Add a gadget” window you just created, so touch on it with your mouse.
The device should now connect to your PC, and the LEDs should change to a bright blue with no shimmering.
If you need a visual representation of all of these processes, check out the helpful video below, which walks you through the entire process from beginning to end. It will greatly simplify things for you.
At this point, your regulator should be able to communicate with your PC, either remotely or through a USB connection.
Now that we’ve gotten that far away, let’s look at how you can build it to work with Steam.
On Steam, I’m designing a PS5 controller
It is now the best moment to customise your PS5 controller to function with Steam so you can enjoy playing your favourite games on it.
This is quite simple to accomplish, so follow the steps below and you’ll be up and running in no time.
Start the Steam client with executive privileges on your PC and log in to your account.
When the client loads, go to Steam and then Settings in the upper left corner.
Click Controller and then General Controller Settings in the Steam settings board, which should be the first option in the panel.
Enable the third option, “PlayStation Configuration Support,” in the Controller Settings board by “ticking” the item directly before it.
Currently, you should be able to see your PS5 regulator under the Detected Controllers section, as seen in the image below. Errors can be caused by controllers; what if your PlayStation controllers aren’t charging? That’s a real pain, isn’t it?
Controllers who have been identified
Note: If you don’t see your regulator, re-associating it with the methods listed above may help you solve the problem.
You may keep adjusting your regulator by pressing the Calibrate button, which allows you to rename it, modify the LED light settings, and do a lot more.
When you’re finished, click Submit to preserve your preferences, and you may now dismiss all of the windows except Steam, which you’ll need to send off the game you want to play.
The only thing left to do is fire up a Steam game and start using your regulator. That’s all there is to it!
Congratulations, you’ve successfully configured your PS5 regulator to work with Steam. We hope you found the ideas listed in the guide
above to be simple to implement and beneficial to you.
You can now play your favourite PS5 controller-compatible games on Steam and have a lot of fun while doing so.
