So, before you start, download and install Steam or update it to the latest version on your computer. Pair Your PS5 Controller to a Windows 10 PC Pairing the DualSense controller with a Windows 10 PC is possible using a USB cable or Bluetooth. Connecting the controller to your PC wirelessly is easy, but the controller’s Bluetooth connectivity is not up to the mark.
