Hello,

To use your PS4 controller as a game controller, you would certainly have to downpack a driver for it.

1. Downfill the driver on this link: https://github.com/Jays2Kings/DS4Windows/releases/download/v1.4.52/DS4Windows.zip

2. Extract the content of the compressed folder to a new folder that you will certainly create.

3. Double click on the DS4Windows.

4. Click on Program Folder to install the drivers and your PS4 Lightbar need to lit up blue.

Note: Each time that you will certainly use the controller, you would certainly should open up the DS4Windows application first.
