DualShock 4 Bluetooth Pairing Settings

Step 1:

  • To pair the DS4 with a computer, first put the controller into pairing mode by press and HOLDING the PlayStation button and Share button at the same time for 3 seconds. Hold these buttons until the light bar starts rapidly flashing.

Operating System – Windows 7/Windows 8

  • If your Operating System is Windows 7, then you have to right-click on the Bluetooth Icon on the bottom right tray. If you are using Windows 8 or higher, open Bluetooth Settings by clicking on the Speech Bubble icon in the Task Bar on the bottom right corner.
  • This will launch Action Center, click on Bluetooth and wait for the Wireless Controller to Appear.
  • Click on it and type 0000 for typing the Pair Code.

Operating System – Windows 10

  • If you are using Windows 10, right-click on the Bluetooth icon in the bottom right tray and click “Add a Bluetooth Device.” This will open up “Bluetooth & other devices.” Make sure your Bluetooth on your computer is set to “on” and click “Add Bluetooth or other device.” When it asks you what kind of device you want to add, click the top option which should be Bluetooth. Your computer will begin searching for a Bluetooth device. If your controller is still rapidly flashing from step 1, it should find it within about 5 seconds.

That’s it; the controller is now connected wirelessly. In case you find an issue with detecting the Wireless Controller after turning on Bluetooth, troubleshoot your PC Bluetooth adapter by updating drivers.
